Forgiveness Meditation

I have decided to incline the focus of my forma practice towards the forgiveness meditation as taught by Ven. Vimalaramsi and administered by Sister Khema. My experience corresponding with her during a recent online retreat was such that I have been re-inspired to take u the Dhammasukha style of practice once more as I have always gained good results from it despite the misgivings others may have about the sutta interpretations of the venerables.

At the same time I am finding myself in the unenviable position of having to inform the venerable with whom I was to undertake a training program that I will be unable to afford to do a retreat in January which will, I imagine, put an end to my participation therein. I regret it but my finances and obligations are such that I really have no other choice.

Perhaps it is due to the guilt and regret I feel about this or perhaps it’s simply that I tend to feel remorse for any number of things in the course of a day that is the reason I feel the impulse to focus on forgiveness. I will be sure to post a link to the instructions here in due time but until then I wish you ll happiness and ease.
