Lecture with the Monks | Opening the Heart: Arousing the Mind of Universal Kindness
May 3 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm
Lecture with the Monks | Opening the Heart: Arousing the Mind of Universal Kindness @ The Crow Collection of Asian Art

The eighth century Indian master Shantideva said, “The mind of universal kindness is like the magical elixir that turns base metals into gold. It transforms an ordinary person into one on the path of growth and happiness.” Love and kindness are mental archetypes that all beings possess. The more we strengthen them, the more beneficial we become to others and ourselves. Buddhism presents numerous contemplative techniques for intensifying and enhancing these archetypes, until they achieve full maturity and universality.
