Publisher's Summary

A course in the Buddhist practice of the brahma viharas, or "heavenly abodes". Detailed instructions from the Buddhist tradition in cultivating mindfulness, presented by a prominent Insight Meditation teacher.

Compassion, kindness, equanimity, and joy are not only the fruits of the awakened life but also the path to it: attitudes of mind that can be cultivated by anyone willing to set the intention for doing so. Christina Feldman shows how these ennobling qualities - known in Buddhism as the brahma viharas (sublime abodes) or the Four Immeasurables - are far more than simply the "feel-good" states they are sometimes mistaken for. If we pursue them sincerely as spiritual practice, they work together, complementing and enhancing each other, to lead us to the kind of awakening that we are compelled to share with others. Thus through the practice of the brahma viharas, we can become participants in the healing and liberation of our world.

Challenging Narrator

The narrator was truly irritating. She read in a very clipped, emotionless voice at a high rate of speed. I rarely don't finish a book but I couldn't finish this one. The content was overpowered by poor narration.

Great content but delivery wooden

This is a really excellent book on the brahaviharas, being kindness compassion joy and equanimity. These are very heartfelt, soft and lovely concepts but the voice of the presenter is very wooden and dry so I felt it was quite disconnect. Also it was hard to connect as it was so fast, when sometimes I wanted a second or to to let something sink in. As such it was really hard to continue at times but I worked through it because the content was so well done with some really strong points. I am going to look for a hard copy of the book so I can take it slower. I can see some of what I heard could really change my life.
