May all beings be happy.

Whatever beings there may be,
weak or strong, without exception,
long, large, middling, short, subtle, blatant, seen & unseen, near & far, born & seeking birth:

May all beings be happy.

Let no one deceive another or despise anyone anywhere,
or through anger or resistance wish for another to suffer.

As a mother would risk her life
to protect her child, her only child,
even so should one cultivate a limitless heart
with regard to all beings.

From the Karaniya Metta Sutta
of the Khuddaka Nikaya




"He abused me, he struck me, he overpowered me, he robbed me"
-- those who harbour such thoughts do not still their hatred.

"He abused me, he struck me, he overpowered me, he robbed me"
-- those who do not harbour such thoughts still their hatred.

Hatred is never appeased by hatred in this world;
by non-hatred alone is hatred appeased.


This is an Eternal Law.

Dhammapada, Khuddaka Nikaya
Translated by the Venerable Acharya Buddharakkhita,
with an Introduction by Bhikkhu Bodhi

Chapter One -- The Pairs

"Woe to you who are rich,
for you have already received your comfort.

Woe to you who are well fed now,
for you will go hungry.

Woe to you who laugh now,
for you will mourn and weep.

Woe to you when all men speak well of you,
for that is how their fathers treated the false prophets.

"But I tell you who hear me:

Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone strikes you on one cheek, turn to him the other also. If someone takes your cloak, do not stop him from taking your tunic. Give to everyone who asks you, and if anyone takes what belongs to you, do not demand it back. Do to others as you would have them do to you.

"If you love those who love you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' love those who love them. And if you do good to those who are good to you, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' do that. And if you lend to those from whom you expect repayment, what credit is that to you? Even 'sinners' lend to 'sinners,' expecting to be repaid in full. But love your enemies, do good to them, and lend to them without expecting to get anything back. Then your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the ungrateful and wicked. Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

"Do not judge, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you."

"Why do you look at the speck of sawdust in your brother's eye and pay no attention to the plank in your own eye? How can you say to your brother, 'Brother, let me take the speck out of your eye,' when you yourself fail to see the plank in your own eye? You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.


"Why do you call me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say?

Luke 6
