I never knew how much I could learn about myself while learning about a culture so different than the one we live in. I chose this project because I wanted to learn more about other people but I think that the one thing I learned about the most was myself. Trying to understand a country that is the comple opposite of my own was challenging at first, but it has made me look at my own life so differently. In this process I found something I really liked to do, which was Buddhism. It has helped me so much in the past few months. I also developed a whole new acceptance, appreciation, and understanding for people who at first I knew nothing about. This project is one that really opened my eyes to a lot of different things, and I hope you enjoyed what will most likely be my last presentation this year. LOVING KINDNESS MEDITATION Hindu 80.5%

And in your heart, say to that person, “For anything you may have done that caused me pain, anything you did either intentionally or unintentionally,

through your thoughts, words, or actions, I forgive you.”

Slowly allow that person to settle into your heart. No force, just opening to them at your own pace. Say to them, “I forgive you.” Gently, gently open to them. If it hurts, let it hurt. Begin to relax the iron grip of your resentment, to let go of that incredible anger. Say to them “I forgive you.” And allow them to be forgiven.

Now bring into your heart the image of someone you wish to ask for forgiveness. Say to them, “For anything I may have done that caused you pain, my thoughts, my actions, my words, I ask for your forgiveness. For all those words that were said out of forgetfulness or fear or confusion, I ask your forgiveness.”

Don’t allow any resentment you may hold for yourself to block your reception of that forgiveness. Let your heart soften to it. Allow yourself to be forgiven. Open to the possibility of forgiveness. Holding them in your heart, say to them, “For whatever I may have done that caused you pain, I ask your forgiveness.”

Now bring an image of yourself into your heart, floating at the center of your chest. Bring yourself into your heart, and using your own first name, say to yourself, “For all that you have done in forgetfulness and fear and confusion, for all the words and thoughts and actions that may have caused pain to anyone, I forgive you.”

Open to the possibility of self-forgiveness. Let go of all the bitterness, the hardness, the judgment of yourself.

Make room in your heart for yourself. Say “I forgive you” to you
