Become a Friend to the World (MKE)
The practice of the six perfections
Many people have the compassionate wish to benefit others, but few understand how to accomplish this successfully in daily life. Bodhisattvas are friends of the world, who have such strong compassion that they are able to transform all their daily activities into ways of benefiting others.
In this series of meditation classes you will learn how to identify with your highest spiritual potential and how, through practicing six traditional meditations taught by Buddha, you can bring abundant joy and peace into your life. These meditations known as the ‘six perfections’ are steeped in Buddhist wisdom and are perfectly suited to modern life – helping us to build a foundation of inner peace within our busy and often stressful lives.
