The Brahma Viharas are often taught as a concentration practice. And yet, in the Metta Sutta, the Buddha says:
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection. (of unconditional, boundless friendliness - metta)
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.
In this course we will practice each of the Brahma Viharas and explore the insights of each: Metta (unconditional friendliness), Karuna (Compassion), Mudita (Empathetic Joy), Upekkha (Equanimity)
