May all beings be happy


sa bbe sa ttā su khi ho ntu
sabbe sattā sukhi hontu


May all beings be happy.

"May all beings be happy and secure. May their hearts be wholesome. Whatever beings there are, feeble or strong, skinny, fat, or medium, or short, small, or large, seen or unseen, those dwelling far or near, those who are born, or those who are yet to be."

“May all beings without exception be well and happy. Let none deceive another or despise any person whatsoever in any place. Let him not wish any harm to anyone in anger or in ill-will. Just as a mother would protect her only child, at the risk of her own life, even so let him cultivate a heart of boundless love towards all beings. Let his thoughts of boundless love pervade the whole world, above, below, and across, without any obstruction, without any hatred, without any ill-will. Whether he is standing, walking, sitting or lying down, as long as he is aware, he should keep this in mind. This is the highest conduct here.

Through the practice of loving-kindness, we live as the supreme beings who live peacefully in love, compassion, appreciative joy and equanimity.” ~
