Overview

Lovingkindness: The Revolutionary Art of Happiness by Sharon Salzberg

In this inspiring book, Sharon Salzberg, one of America's leading spiritual teachers, shows us how the Buddhist path of lovingkindness can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each of us.

Throughout our lives we long to love ourselves more deeply and find a greater sense of connection with others. Our fear of intimacy—both with others and with ourselves—creates feelings of pain and longing, but those feelings can awaken in us the desire for freedom and the willingness to take up a spiritual path.

Longtime meditation practitioner and teacher Sharon Salzberg draws on Buddhist teachings, wisdom stories from various traditions, her own experiences, and guided meditation exercises to unearth the radiant heart within each one of us. Discover how the practice of lovingkindness illuminates a path to cultivating love, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity, helping us realize our own capacity for goodness and a new connection with all beings.

The Buddha said: 'None of the means to acquire religious merit has a sixteenth part of the value of Loving-kindness.' After reading this book, I believe it. It is essential for anyone, Buddhist or not, who wishes a better knowlegde of the Brahma-Viharas or sublime states: Loving-Kindness, Compassion, Sympathetic Joy & Equanimity. The author writes with a warmth and understanding that goes well with the subject matter. I go back and read chapters often and find inspiration every time.
