Our fear of intimacy-- both with others and with ourselves-- creates feelings of pain and longing. But these feelings can also awaken in us the desire for freedom and the willingness to take up the spiritual path. Salzberg shows us how the Buddhist path of lovingkindness can help us discover the radiant, joyful heart within each of us. The Buddha described the nature of such a spiritual path as "the liberation of the heart, which is love." Simple Buddhist teachings, wisdom stories from various traditions, and guided meditation practices illustrate how each one of us can cultivate love, compassion, joy, and equanimity

A friend criticizes you. You grow impatient with someone you're trying to help. A cell phone user annoys you on a train. Would your first response to these situations be kindness? In The Kindness Handbook, Sharon Salzberg explores with insight and clarity how kindness for ourselves and others can be the quality we choose to steer our lives by. From the foundation of this transformative practice and its entry point through you, to its daily expression in your life, this book features a thoughtful collection of anecdotes, stories, and practical tools to inspire kindness for any life situation. The Kindness Handbook is your personal companion to explore the rich landscape of kindness-and help you see just how it might shift and open up your life to greater joy, meaning, and compassion. "For kindness to be more fully realized, it needs to be distinguished from being ineffectual or meek. It also needs to be infused with wisdom, supported by courage, and threaded with balance." -Sharon Salzberg, author of The Kindness Handbook "This book is like having Sharon and her gentle wisdom on call, 24-7, to remind you that in every moment, kindness can make a huge difference in how the next moment unfolds, in yourself and in others. This simple practice will light up and lighten your life." -Jon Kabat-Zinn, author of Coming to Our Senses and Arriving at Your Own Door "Sharon Salzberg is a powerful teacher of the enduring value of kindness. Here she brings her teachings to us in a beautiful and accessible form through moving stories and powerful exercises. The world needs more kindness. Sharon is showing us the way." -Roshi Joan Halifax, abbot at the Upaya Zen Center "With the deep wisdom gained by her many years of dharma practice and the greatness of her Being, Sharon leads us gently with confident strength and inspiration down the path to true happiness and love. Sleep with this book under your pillow!" -Krishna Das, author of Flow of Grace

Lovingkindness meditation : [learning to love through insight meditation] by Sharon Salzberg( Recording )

4 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 89 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Within your own heart is a limitless source of supreme energy--the energy of love. No other force in the universe compares to it. The world's great spiritual traditions, both past and present, agree on this simple principle. Can love be harnessed and applied to others used as a tool for changing lives? Lovingkindness Meditation teaches a traditional practice for cultivating love, and applying it as a life-changing force. Dating back 2,600 years, metta (an ancient Buddhist meditation practice on lovingkindness) is a timeless method for unlocking your heart's immense healing resources. Metta meditation is not a technique for repressing your awareness of life's pain. Rather, it is a way to break down the artificial mental barriers that separate you from others"--
A heart as wide as the world : stories on the path of lovingkindess by Sharon Salzberg( Book )

4 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Buddhist teachings have the power to transform our lives for the better, says Sharon Salzberg, and all we need to bring about this transformation can be found in the ordinary events of our everyday experiences. Salzberg distills more than twenty-five years of teaching and practicing meditation into a series of short essays, rich with anecdotes and personal revelations, that offer genuine aid and comfort for anyone on the spiritual path. Many chance moments, both small and profound, serve as the basis for Salzberg's teachings: hearing a market stall hawker calling "I have what you need!"; noting hotel guests' reactions to a midnight fire alarm; watching her teacher, Dipa Ma, bless a belligerent dog; seeing the Dalai Lama laughing uproariously at his own mistake. Each passing moment, Salzberg shows, can help us down the path toward "a seamlessness of connection and an unbounded heart."
