The Buddhist practice of loving kindness can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each of us. Loving kindness is revolutionary because it has the power to radically change the way we experience ourselves and the world, helping us cultivate true happiness and genuine compassion for others. Loving-kindness is not weak or passive, but is the strength that comes from seeing the true nature of suffering in the world, enabling us to bear witness to that suffering without fear. It also makes joy flourish in response to other’s happiness.
