Meditations for a Kind Heart – Sundays at 11am with Gen Khedrub

A kind heart is a special mental attitude that cherishes other people at least as much as we cherish ourselves. Learning to cherish others is the best way to improve our relationships and find real happiness. Buddha gave many simple and effective techniques to access the wisdom that empowers our kindness and that cuts through the old habits in our mind.
