Metta Prayer

Here is a poem on loving-kindness, or metta:


May all beings be happy and safe,

May they be healthy and strong,

May they live with ease,

And free from all suffering.


May they be at peace,

And free from all worry,

May they find joy in their lives,

And know only love and kindness.


May they be supported,

And surrounded by friends,

May they find contentment,

And be filled with gratitude.


May they be awakened,

To their true nature and potential,

May they be liberated,

From all suffering and ignorance.


May they live in harmony,

With all beings on this earth,

May they be filled with loving-kindness,

For all living beings.
