Marking the end of our journey exploring Mahasi Sayadaw's Manual of Insight, this podcast is from the final Deepening Your Practice class in Echo Park. This dharma talk explores metta jhana, going back to the Pali term “piti” and how it relates to its English translation as “rapture” and how mind-states affect the sense of self. Stay tuned for our new class - and podcast - format which will start with some archival talks from George over the next few weeks while he is away in retreat in Burma.
