The English Translation of the Chant on Loving Kindness

The Discourse on Loving-kindness which should be done


This is what should be done by one skilled in good, who would attain the

state of peace. He should be able, upright, truly straight, meek and gentle.

Not proud contented and easy to support, with few duties and frugal habits.

He should be calm in facilities and discreet, not puffed up, not greedy

among lay supporters. And let him not do even the slightest thing which

later on, the wise may blame. [He should contemplate]

May they be happy and secure. All beings, may they be secure & happy-hearted.

Whatever living beings there are; weak or strong, omitting none.

Those who are long or great, middle-sized, short, subtle or gross.

And those which are seen, or the unseen and those which dwell near and far,

beings and those who wish to be.

All beings, may they be happy-hearted.

Let none another deceive, nor despise anyone at all or with

thoughts of anger or hate, wish dukkha for each other.

Thus as a mother might guard her son with her life, her only child,

in the same way with all beings. Unlimited one’s mind should be developed.

Loving-kindness for all the world, unlimited one’s mind should be developed,

above, below and all around. Unclamped, without malice or enmity.

Standing or walking, seated too, and lying down while free from drowsiness,

he should stand firm in this mindfulness. This is divine Abiding here, they say.

And not going to views, virtuous and possessed of insight, having removed greed

for sensual pleasures. He will surely come no more to any womb.
