20 April 2019, Topic : Boundless Love
Love is our deepest longing. We want to love, be loved and to love ourselves. Connecting with boundless love offers us the opportunity, the taste of true “equanimity”, or as we say in Western culture “serenity”.
In this talk we discover how it is possible to care deeply without attachment.
Together with the Wagga Aus-Sri Lankan Cultural Association (WASCA), Potowa Buddhist Group co-organised this inaugural celebration in Wagga Wagga and offer it to the public in May 2018.
