Metta(loving-kindness) for embarking on the journey in limitlessness to meet you

We would like to begin our journey on the limitless webs with Metta(loving kindness) sutta. 

 

Metta Sutta

This is the work for those 

who are skilled and peaceful, who seek the good:

May they be able and upright, straightforward,

of gentle speech and not proud.

May they be content and easily supported,

unburdened with their senses calmed.

May they be wise, not arrogant

and without desire for the possessions of others.

May they do nothing mean

or that the wise would reprove.

May all beings be happy.

May they live in safety and joy.

All living beings,

whether weak or strong,

tall, stout, medium or short,

seen or unseen, near or distant,

born or to be born,

may they all be happy.

Let no one deceive another

or despise any being in any state,

let none by anger or hatred

wish harm to another.

As a mother watches over her child,

willing to risk her own life to protect her only child,

so with a boundless heart

should one cherish all living beings,

suffusing the whole world

with unobstructed loving-kindness.

Standing or walking, sitting or lying down,

during all one’s waking hours,

may one remain mindful of this heart

and this way of living that is the best in the world.

Unattached to speculations, views

and sense desires, with clear vision,

such a person will never be reborn
