    Experiencing Gratitude- an article by Tibetan Buddhist monk Karma Yeshe Rabgye :

    (There's a link to a guided meditation in the article.)

    Any thoughts about the article?

    It's interesting when you sit with an emotion or feeling which doesn't have something you are attaching it to. The nearest one to gratitude I do is in the stage of Metta Bhavana where I wish someone well who has done me harm. I change it to being grateful to them for reminding me of why I practice, and then sit with that gratitude for a few minutes before finishing with pushing out metta, where you are generating a feeling of compassion for the universe, wishing it well.

    Hello Aloka,

    This article makes a lot of sense. Focusing on the experience of feeling grateful instead of labelling and categorizing the experience. It moves the experience from the head to the heart.

    Thanks for sharing. I plan to follow up with Experiencing Gratitude meditation.

    Kind Regards,
