May I be happy,
happiness & live without any
May all beings be successful
happy: May they be of joyful mind, all
breathe & have life.
Let all beings enjoy safety,
contentment, ease & bliss. Let no one deceive another,
one be harsh in speech. Let no one by anger or
ill to his neighbor.
Even as a mother, at the
her own life, guards and protects her
only child, so with a
boundless heart of compassion, I venerate
all living beings by
the entire universe with sympathy,
above, beneath & all around without
compassion for the sorrows of
others, immeasurable joy in their joys.
Thus I cultivate an infinite
Goodwill toward this whole world. During all my waking hours I
treasure this thought that this very way
of caring is
indeed the truly noblest behavior
in this whole wide world.
Thus shall I, by stilling
pointless discussions & controversies, by acting
blamelessly, be gifted with tranquility
& true insight.
Thus shall I subdue
urge & never again know
inspire all beings to fulfill the
conditions leading to Nirvana. May all
be thus utterly liberated &
released from suffering. May all
thus escape the dangers of ageing,
disease and death.
