All living beings, whether weak or strong, tall, stout, medium or short, seen or unseen, near or distant, born or to be born, may they all live with ease.

As a mother watches over her child, willing to risk her own life to protect her only child, so with a boundless heart should one cherish all living beings;

Radiating loving-kindness over the entire world, spreading upward to the skies, and downward to the depths; outward and unbounded, freed from hatred and ill-will.

Standing or walking, sitting or lying down, during all one’s waking hours, may one remain mindful of this heart and this way of living that is sublime.
