Thousands of candles can be lighted from a single candle, and the life of the candle will not be shortened.
Through humanitarian actions, we have an opportunity to change perceptions and bring awareness through compassion and goodwill.
At the heart of Samadhi Productions, our goal is to assist humanity in making choices to better not only their lives but the lives of the people around them. We accomplish this by building bridges across community cultures, supporting those who advocate for others - both locally and globally, and by inspiring stimulation for elevation so we all can be "the change we want to see in the world".
We practice humanitarianism by donating our time and services to charities we are passionate about. In our communities, we offer sponsorships so we can support others in bringing their visions to fruition. We do this by donating our time and services for a reduced rate, trade or complementary. In addition, we host food and donation drives for the local charities we support and offer a number of scholarships to every class, workshop, retreat, and event we produce both nationally and internationally.
Metta: universal kindness
Metta is a recognition of the most basic solidarity that we have with others, this sharing of a common aspiration to find fulfillment and escape suffering. Metta is empathy. It’s the willingness to see the world from another’s point of view: to walk a mile in another person’s shoes. Metta is the desire that all sentient beings be well, or at least the ones we’re currently thinking about or in contact with. It’s wishing others well. Metta is friendliness, consideration, kindness, generosity.
Metta is an attitude rather than just a feeling. It’s an attitude of friendliness. Metta is the basis for compassion. When our Metta meets another’s suffering, then our Metta transforms into compassion.
