all Beings by Beautiful Bliss:
Blessed Buddha Once said:
am a friend and helper to all, I am sympathetic to all living beings.
I develop a mind full of love,
always in harmlessness.
I gladden my mind, fill it with joy, immovable and unshakable..
I develop these divine states of mind
not trained by anyone...
I am a
friend of the footless, I am a friend of the bipeds;
I am a friend of
those with 4 feet, I am a friend of the many-footed.
Thereby the footless does not harm me, nor does the
bipeds harm me.
do neither those
with 4 feet, nor with many feet ever harm me...
Anguttara Nikāya II 72
Thus he who both day and night takes delight in
sharing love with all that lives, finds enmity with none.
Nikāya. I 208
One with a mind of love feels compassion for the entire world
above, below and across, unlimited
Among tigers, lions, leopards & bears I lived on the forest.
No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone.
Uplifted by such universal friendliness I enjoyed the forest.
Finding great solace in this free sweetly silenced solitude.
