    The Heart of Meditation

    Discovering Innermost Awareness

    • by
    • H.H. the Fourteenth Dalai Lama,

    The Buddha’s Path of Kindness, Compassion, Joy, and Equanimity

    • by
    • Christina Feldman
    Compassion, kindness, equanimity, and joy are not only the fruits of the awakened life but also the path to it: attitudes of mind that can be cultivated by anyone willing to set the intention for doing so.

In our hyper, instant-gratification culture, however, most people miss out on those powerful outcomes because it’s hard to commit to a long-term practice.
