LOVINGKINDNESS by Sharon Salzberg

by: Sharon Salzberg

Metta (usually translated as ‘lovingkindness’) is a fundamental form of Buddhist meditation. Having practised it for over forty years, Sharon Salzberg is able to introduce the subject in a clear and practical way, which also includes plenty of her own experiences along the path. Essentially, this book teaches how we can ground ourselves in a deep state of compassion and love and use it as a starting point for how we view ourselves as well as how we interact with the world. Filled with practices, this newly republished classic is an excellent introduction to a vast and ancient subject, which perhaps has been somewhat overlooked when all eyes have been on mindfulness over the last few years.
