Loving-kindness meditation can be brought in to support the practice of ‘bare attention’ to help keep the mind open and sweet. It provides the essential balance to support your insight meditation practice.
 


 
It is a fact of life that many people are troubled by difficult emotional states in the pressured societies we live in, but do little in terms of developing skills to deal with them. Yet even when the mind goes sour it is within most people’s capacity to arouse positive feelings to sweeten it. Loving-kindness is a meditation practice taught by the Buddha to develop the mental habit of selfless or altruistic love. In the Dhammapada can be found the saying: “Hatred cannot coexist with loving-kindness, and dissipates if supplanted with thoughts based on loving-kindness.”

Sitting in meditation pose (full or half-lotus asana) requires a supportive meditation cushion. Some, due to back or other physical requirements, prefer sitting in a chair with straight back support.  Daily practice (sitting in the stillness of body and mind) may be as short as 2 minutes and as long as 4 hours.  Most daily sitting practice is for 30 minutes.  Yoga Outlet has a variety of excellent meditation cushions and benches (featured below).  Prices are not included on this website (Durham Cool) due to frequent discounts and sales.  You may attain the price, availability, color and shipping information by clicking on the image whereupon you will be transferred to the safe and secure partner website, Yoga Outlet.com to complete your purchase and or continue shopping for great meditation/yoga products.
