The Flame of Loving Kindness Burns the Fuel of Anger

Everyone talks about loving kindness and compassion but generally speaking these days they are related to our emotions with conditions involved.
In this weekend program the Venerable Lama Samten will explain the meaning of loving kindness and compassion beyond conditions.

About Lama Samten:

Venerable Lama Samten was born in West Tibet in 1947 and took ordination in exile in India with the Very Venerable Khyabje Kalu Rinpoche and completed 10 years of solitary retreat under his guidance in the Karma Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism.  In 1980 Lama Samten was sent to New Zealand by HH 16th Gyalwa Karmapa and spent 24 years there developing the Buddha Dharma. He retired in 2004 and now teaches internationally, guiding his many students in their practice and taking them on pilgrimage to holy Buddhist places around the world.
