Meditations for a Kind Heart
The Healing Power of Cherishing Others
Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
These three simple guided meditations will help us to develop greater peace of mind and happiness, and to improve our relationships with others through learning to cherish others. The first is a meditation on cherishing others—thinking that others are important, and that their happiness and freedom are important. The second is a practical meditation on compassion—the sincere wish to protect others from suffering. The third is a practical meditation on love—the sincere wish to give happiness to others. All these meditations can be practiced by anyone. Background information and guidance is provided in the accompanying 16-page booklet.
