Karma

Kamma in Pali or Karma in the Sanskrit language refers to an intentional action; a force that is generated through thoughts, speech and bodily action, and is constantly moulding our lives.

The understanding of the Law of Karma constitute an important aspect of wisdom. It enables us to develop patience, tolerance and understanding when confronted with obstacles and challenges in our daily lives. It instills in us a sense of responsibility, self-reliance and confidence, providing us with a proper sense of purpose and direction in life.


Metta Loving Kindness CD

Metta in Pali or Maitri in the Sanskrit language means loving-kindness or compassionate love. It is the wish for all sentient beings to be well and happy.

Metta is a great healing force. It promotes the development of virtues, such as compassion, altruistic joy, and equanimity. It also promotes patience, tolerance, gratitude and above all, a forgiving heart. Forgiveness is an important factor which helps in releasing certain emotional blockages due to grudges, remorse or guilt conscience.


The Purpose of Life CD

The true meaning of life lies beyond worldly happiness, beyond material wealth and status. As long as we do not have the wisdom to realize the impermanence, unsatisfactoriness and emptiness of worldly things and pursuits, we will always be seeking for meaning.

To realize the true purpose and meaning of life need patience, perseverance as well as faith and confidence in moral and spiritual values. We need to fulfill our immediate purpose before we can move on to something higher.
