Metta Circle Sharing by Sis Jee Sin
I started a small Metta Circle on 2 August 2012. We have 14 participants, consist of children 6-12 years: 5, teenager: 2 and adult: 7. The youngest boy age 6+. I played Bhante Mahinda’s Metta CD. During chanting, the children were so quiet and focused. At first, I was a bit worried if sitting meditation, they will be restless or making noises but they were so co-operative! They sat on their cushions with their funny postures, some with eyes open… but no sound from them… Amazing leh the power of Metta! Parents who brought their children felt that when the group is calm and peaceful, the surrounding will become so.
The session took about 1 hour, I conducted both in Mandarin and English.
