    Friends:

    How to develop complete Harmlessness & infinite Friendliness:
    The Brahma-Viharas
    Free as a gift of Dhamma supreme
    There, Oohh friends, the Bhikkhu with a mind full of friendly loving-kindness is pervading first one direction, then a second one, then a third one, then the fourth one, & as below so above, across & all around, everywhere identifying himself with all sentient beings, he is encompassing the whole world with a mind full of friendly loving-kindness, with a mind wide, developed, unbounded, cleared, exalted, pure & bright, freed & released from any hate and all ill will ...

    There, Oohh friends, the Bhikkhu with a mind full of understanding, pity & compassion is pervading first the front, then the right side, then the back, then the left side, as below so above, across & all around, all over, far & wide; identifying himself with all sentient beings, he is perfusing the whole universe with a mind imbued with emphatic compassion, with a spacious mind, a refined mind, infinite, cleared, pure & brilliant, freed & released from all anger and any enmity ...

    There, Oohh friends, the Bhikkhu with a mind full of altruistic sympathetic joy is pervading first the North, then the East, then the South, then the West, as below so above, across & all around, universally, infinitely; identifying himself with all sentient beings, he is suffusing all galaxies with a mind full of genuine mutual & altruistic sympathetic joy, rejoicing in the success of all other beings, with an open mind, vast, limitless, purified, cleared, pure & shining, freed & released from all aversion and any bitterness ...


    There, Oohh friends, the Bhikkhu with a mind full of balanced equanimity is pervading first the frontal quadrant, then the right, then the rear & then the left quadrant, as below so above, across & all around; and everywhere identifying himself with all sentient beings, he is permeating the whole world with a mind satiated by balanced equanimity, calmed, with a mountain-like mind, cultivated, endless, cleared, pure & dazzling, freed & released from all irritation, any agitation and even subtle resentment ...

    This device should be contemplated & emulated daily as it is the supreme medicine against all Hate, Hostility, Anger, Indignation, Wrath, Cruelty, Brutality, Violence, Irritation, Ill Will, Resentment, Bitterness, Opposition, Conservatism, Mental Rigidity & Stubbornness !


    Then one day, we might sleep with the doors open & dance with the children in our arms ...
    Friendship is the Greatest !

    Bhikkhu Samāhita, Sri Lanka.
