Guided Buddhist Compassion Meditation: A Casket of Sacred Dharma
Compassion Meditations are found throughout Buddhist literature. As a caregiver you may find it helpful to read these aloud to your client and his or her family and friends if they are open. Also, from time to time it is rejuvenating to read or listen to such contemplations in your free time when you need inspiration.
Here, we present an audio reading of one classic contemplation, by the great master Pema Karpo. You may wish to spend some extra time on the visualization process, pausing the recording to allow for that to stabilize.
Omniscient Pema Karpo (kun mkhyen padma dkar po) ( 1527-1592), was a great scholar and adept of the Drukpa Kagyü school. This contemplation is entitled A Casket of Sacred Dharma.*
