As a young British hitch-hiker, who was in search of happiness, fulfilment and the deeper meanings of life, Venerable Amaranatho embarked by chance on a 10-day meditation course in Perth, which helped set him off on his spiritual journey.
In this talk, Venerable Amaranatho also talked about mindfulness, generosity, kindness and love. To sum up his talk, he read two poems, one of which is a beautiful piece of Sufi poetry by Hafiz, called It Felt Love.
Did the rose
Ever open its heart
And give to this world
It felt the encouragement of light
We all remain
