In this enlightening talk, Bhante Ananda will share insights on the Brahmaviharas—loving-kindness, compassion, sympathetic joy, and equanimity—with a particular focus on compassion (Karuna) as a vehicle of joy. Drawing from the ancient Pali canon and personal experiences, he explores how cultivating and expressing compassion can lead to profound transformations. Through heartfelt stories and teachings, he highlights the ripple effects of compassion, fostering a sense of interconnectedness and nurturing genuine happiness. Join this inspiring journey as Bhante Ananda illuminates the path of compassion, revealing its potential to bring joy and harmony to our lives and the world around us.

About the speaker: Bhante Ānanda is a Canadian Buddhist monk trained in the Teaching and Way of Life (Dhamma-Vinaya) of early Buddhism. Having received his going-forth from Bhante Vimalaramsi and completing full ordination in Sri Lanka, he aims to embody the essence of the Buddha’s instructions.

Emphasising “Natural Samādhi,” Bhante Ānanda teaches the development of mental collectedness through uplifting the mind and relaxing bodily tension. He guides practitioners through Loving-Kindness meditation, the four Brahmavihāras, Satipatthāna, and culminating in Vimutti—mental liberation.
