Time: 2.30pm to 4.00pm
Metta Sutta (Karaṇīyametta Sutta, The Discourse on Loving Kindness) is often recited by the Theravāda monks and devotees. There are many practical advices given by the Lord Buddha in this discourse. Therefore, it will be definitely beneficial for us to understand the sutta in more detail. Venerable Janakābhivaṃsa, with many references to the commentaries of the Pāḷi Tipiṭaka, will explain the reason the Lord Buddha expounded the discourse, the qualities to be cultivated by a person who wishes to realize the tranquility of Nibbāna, the method of practicing “Loving Kindness” meditation, and how one should continue to strive to realize the highest goal and “will never come to be reborn in a womb again”.
All are welcome.
