Metta-panna literally means kindness and wisdom. Without kindness there is no wisdom. Without wisdom there is no kindness. They are deeply integrated qualities.
Metta-panna also points to two interdependent and highly effective meditation practices which the Buddha taught according to the earliest texts.
This small book gives an overview of metta-panna meditation and introduces each stage (jhana). As one’s practice unfolds, the Buddha’s instructions shift to take advantage of deepening equanimity and clarity. Buddha’s Map gives these instructions in detail. Kindness and Wisdom Practice provides quick reminders of the bare essentials for those who are already using this practice. It may also be helpful to those new to this style of meditation who want a quick overview of how it works.
