Here is a good example. It is repeated in quite a few places.
Kamran wrote:Ajahn Jaysaro mentions at the end of the above video another way of doing metta that Analayo also talks about and that it is: Take the feeling itself as the object, perhaps making it rise by thinking of a kitten or a loved one, and without using discursive thought and without spreading to particular individuals allow the feeling to grow. This is noted as a powerful method by both jaysaro and analayo.
chataranga wrote:Greetings folks,
I've a question on metta meditation. On another post (can't remember which one) someone wrote that metta should not be sent to one of the opposite sex. I do "blessings to..." meditations and metta meditations each day and do these for people of both sexes as well as "all beings everywhere". I would like to know which sutta(s) I can find some information on this or any other references that may be useful. Thank you and blessings to you and yours.
