Something Understood

Last Sunday one of our Sangha members recommended this week's offering on the BBC Radio 4
program, "Something Understood". The piece is "Cultivating Kindness", by Suryagupta Dharmacharini, Chair of the London Buddhist Centre. In this episode, Suryagupta explores the Metta Bhavana meditation practice - the technique for the cultivation of kindness created by the Buddha.


Unfortunately, this program is not available as a podcast so here is the link to it on the iPlayer, but hurry, it is only available until the end of the month.
