Four Guardian Meditations – January 3
In times of uncertainty; with disease, natural disasters, social and political unrest; it makes sense that we might turn to our practice for protection. In the teachings of the Buddha, there is a set of four meditations that may not necessarily protect you from illness or external turmoil but can be used for grounding and guarding yourself against acting upon unskillful intentions. These four protective meditations are the Recollection of the Buddha, Good Will, Contemplation of the Body, and Mindfulness of Death. This diverse collection of practices is meant to be an antidote to discouragement/nihilism, anger, lust, and laziness/heedlessness. Where the practices converge is with the importance of being skillful with the power of one’s intention.
Join us for this half-daylong of practice with the four guardian meditations.
