    Blessing

    by The Buddha

    May every creature abound in well-being and peace.
    May every living being, weak or strong, the long and the small
    The short and the medium-sized, the mean and the great.

    May every living being, seen or unseen, those dwelling far off,
    Those near by, those already born, those waiting to be born,
    May all attain inward peace.

    Let no one deceive another, Let no one despise another in any situation,
    Let no one, from antipathy or hatred, wish evil to anyone at all.
    Just as a mother, with her own life, protects her only son from hurt,
    So within yourself foster a limitless concern for every living creature.

    Display a heart of boundless love for all the world,
    In all its height and depth and broad extent,
    Love unrestrained, without hate or enmity.
    Then as you stand or walk, sit or lie, until overcome by drowsiness,
    Devote your mind entirely to this, it is known as living here life divine.
