Daily Dharma

People lying in bed ill are lucky because they have the opportunity to do nothing but contemplate stress and pain. Their minds don’t need to take up anything else, don’t need to go anywhere else. They have the opportunity to contemplate pain at all times—and let go of pain at all times.

The Power of Connection: Cultivating a Generous Heart

The Power of Connection: Cultivating a Generous Heart

Vinny Ferraro

Who among us has not felt the weight of loneliness? Out of thousands of skillful methods the Buddha taught, the brahmaviharas, or “sublime attitudes,” may be the most direct antidote to feelings of isolation and separation. In this series, Vinny Ferraro, an ex-convict and senior teacher at Against the Stream, will explore the first two of the brahmaviharas, lovingkindness and compassion, the cultivation of which increases our capacity to meet a range of conditions with a generous heart. In addition to providing tools to allay loneliness, Ferraro will pay special attention to the process of meeting our shortcomings with care.
