Drop of Dhamma Delight!

Friends:

How to develop infinite Friendliness:


Begin by extending Friendliness towards yourself:
May I be free from ill-will.
May I be free from hostility.
May I be free from adversity.
May I be happy.
May I be free from suffering.
May I not be separated from the good fortune I have attained.
I am the owner of my kamma and must inherit its results.



May the guardian deities in this house be free from anger.
May they be free from hostility.
May they be free from adversity.
May they be happy.
May they be free from suffering.
May they not be separated from the good fortune they have attained.
They are owners of their kamma and will inherit its results.



Next, extend Friendliness to your parents, teachers, relatives, and friends:
May my mother and father, teacher, relatives,
and associates be free from anger.
May they be free from hostility.
May they be free from adversity.
May they be happy.
May they be free from suffering.
May they not be separated from the good fortune they have attained.
They are owners of their kamma and will inherit its results.



Then extend Friendliness to all kinds of living beings:
May all sentient things, all breathing things, all beings, all persons,
all individuals, all women, all men, all Noble Ones, all ordinary persons,
all deities, all human beings, all those destined for the states of loss,
may all these individualities be free from anger.
May they be free from hostility.
May they be free from adversity.
May they be happy.
May they be free from suffering.
May they not be separated from the good fortune they have attained.
All beings are the owners of their kamma and must inherit its results.



Finally, extend Friendliness in all directions:
In the east, the south, the west, the north, the south-east, the south-west,
the north-west, the north-east, below, and above. May all sentient things,
all breathing things, all beings, all persons, all individuals, all women, all men,
all Noble Ones, all ordinary persons, all deities, all human beings,
all those destined for the states of loss, be free from anger.
May they be free from hostility.
May they be free from adversity.
May they be happy.
May they be free from suffering.
May they not be separated from the good fortune they have attained.
All beings are the owners of their kamma and will inherit its results.
