Critical Dharma for Thinking Minds

Cherish All Beings

Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings;
Radiating kindness over the entire world:
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.

– “Karaniya Metta Sutta: The Buddha’s Words on Loving-kindness”
translated from the Pali by The Amaravati Sangha
