Hi Paul & David,

Thank you for the information. Do you also have any thoughts, based on your personal experiences and dhamma practice, on how best to cultivate samatha and uppekha, and why they are both so essential?

I just started a new discussion on the topic, if anyone feels like sharing their insights and understandings.

"As Buddhists, we should aim to develop relationships that are not predominated by grasping and clinging. Our relationships should be characterised by the brahmaviharas of metta (loving kindness), mudita (sympathetic joy), karuna (compassion), and upekkha (equanimity)."
