The Four Faces of Buddha’s Love – the divine heartitudes or brahmaviharas - are recognized as boundless, indispensable, and co-creative. Equanimity, loving kindness, compassion and empathic joy make up the heart engine of BuddhaDharma. As informed by prajna wisdom, each undergirds the others. Equanimity - balance, dynamic presence, rather than sluggishness - informs loving kindness. Equanimity or upeksha, not reactive karmic activity, is stabilized, affirmed through empathic joy or mudita. Empathic joy, mudita, is the oft-overlooked brahmavihara – and yet, powerful and ever-present as we look into the essence. In this session we will explore equanimity and empathic joy, in the context of the four heartitudes, Buddha’s love in action, and find our own ways of enlightened activity.
