abiding in this ephemeral world ...

“may all beings be happy. may they be joyous and live in safety.


all living beings, whether weak or strong, in high or middle or low realms of existence, small or great, visible or invisible, near or far, born or to be born, many all beings be happy.


even as a mother at the risk of her life watches over and protects her only child, so with a boundless mind should we cherish all living things, suffusing love over the entire world .. above, below, and all around without limit.”
