We have a final meditation session in the morning that includes something called “Metta Bhavana“. In it we send out compassionate thoughts to all beings and although a little corny, I find myself getting a bit choked up at the end. We ask all those we have done wrong to, intentionally or unintentionally, for forgiveness and forgive all those who have done us harm. I am really feeling it, and the release is beautiful and freeing.
I share the 8am train back to Mumbai with my new friends Shumona and Dhanajay. We have some hearty laughs and great discussions ranging across many topics. I have to admit to feeling quite a high.
