1998-11-30 Sympathetic Joy - Mudita 59:33

1998-11-22 Seeing In A New Way 55:28
  Sylvia Boorstein
Vipassana means seeing things clearly. When we are overwhelmed, our view can become inhibited. Like a miracle, seeing from a different view allows us to see and do in a different way. All we need is one moment of clarity to feel freedom, and all else passes. Meditation is one revelation after another, leading one to see with more kindness and compassion for the benefit of all beings.
