Loving Kindness Meditation

From Sister Henrita Frost, SSND

May I be safe and protected,
free from Inner and outer harm.

May I be happy and contented.

May I be healthy and whole to
whatever degree possible.

May I live with ease of well-being.

Offer Loving Kindness to . . .

Yourself
Benefactor
Friend
Neutral person
Difficult person

Vast world we live in . . . May all beings in air, on land and in the water be safe, happy, healthy and free from suffering.

The entire universe . . . May all beings everywhere on all planes of existence, known and unknown, be safe, happy, healthy and free from sufferings.

Compassion is the trembling or quivering of the heart in response to pain or suffering. (Pali language)
