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