Metta Sutra

Metta Sutra chant by Imee Ooi. Include the English translation of the Metta Sutta.

May All Be Filled With Joy and Peace

 May all be filled with joy and peace. May all beings everywhere, The strong and the weak, The great and the small, The meek and the powerful, The short and the long, The subtle and the gross:

May all beings everywhere, Both seen and unseen, Dwelling far off or nearby, Being, or waiting to become: May all be filled with lasting joy.

Let no one deceive another, Let no one anywhere despise another, Let no one out of anger or resentment Wish suffering to anyone at all.

Just as a mother with her own life Protects her child, her only child, from hurt, So within yourself let grow A boundless love for all creatures.

Let your love flow outward through the whole universe To its full height, depth, and broad extent, Then, as you stand or walk, Sit or lie down, As long as you are awake, Strive for this with a onepointed mind: Your life will bring heaven to earth.
