Dear Friends, Sangha, Friends of Sangha,
"We have spent some time in previous sessions looking at the first three of the Buddha's Four Immeasurable Minds or Sublime States:  Love or Loving Kindness, Compassion, and Sympathetic Joy-- all keys to enjoying a happy life and assisting everyone around you to become happier.  Now it is time to examine the fourth abode of Equanimity or Inclusiveness (upeksha), which encourages us to practice the acceptance of everything and to not discriminate.  Equanimity is deeply tied to the first three Immeasurable Minds and enhances them all."
Please arrive shortly before 5:30 tonight to join the practices of meditation, Dharma and Dharma Discussion.  
Gary will offer leadership, we will be there for each other.
After practice tonight,  you will have a chance to see and borrow one of Thay's many books, a collection of them will be present for you to borrow.
"For love to be true love, it must contain compassion, joy, and equanimity.  True equanimity has to have love, compassion, and joy in it." Thay.
