About Peace Beyond Suffering
If you would like to study and practice with Ajahn Acahlo's teaching material in more depth, please visit his website: www.peacebeyondsuffering.org
This guided Compassion Meditation is 'Level 3 - Advanced' in a three-part series. Here we add a greater number of beings as well as more diverse classes of beings to our meditation. Including enemies and even beings in hell. It is important to have listened to the two-part 'Cultivating Deep and Vast Compassion' talk and to have worked through levels 1 and 2 of the meditation before undertaking this advanced practice. Follow all of the steps diligently you are sure to develop Great Compassion.
In 'level 1' in this series of Compassion Meditations, we practised how to hold Compassion for Oneself, a Friend and a Neutral person. In level 2, we are increasing our capacity by including more friends, more neutral people, and also 1 'difficult person.'
This is the first in a series of three practice. In this meditation we do a body sweeping, establish mindfulness upon the breathing, move into Loving-Kindness practice and then establish the quality of Compassion firmly within one's own heart and mind. After this, we move on to include both another 'dear person' and then a 'neutral person.' In the follow up meditations we will train to include more and more beings within the Heart and attitude of Compassion.
This is the podcast that acts as a pre requisite to the beautiful, compassion meditation practice of Ajahn's. Compassion is an incredible subject, for it can be both an emotion, an attitude a pure form of concentration as well as an powerful tool for transformation and purification. This being so, there is a lot to cover, which is why this talk has been presented in two-parts. The talk covers many interesting overlapping subjects, from the esoteric and cosmological, to the nitty gritty of integrating Compassion into our daily life.
