METTA? What’s that?

Saturday, June 4th, 2011

The Pali word “metta” is a multi-significant term meaning loving-kindness, friendliness, goodwill, fellowship, amity, and non-violence. Metta is a universal, unselfish, and all-embracing love.

It is our motivation of human nature to promote our own interests. So when we transform that urge into the desire to promote the interests and happiness of others, we are promoting our own well-being in the best possible manner. I truly believe that metta makes the world a better place. I’m sure that every single one of us in the Young Wisdom Project try to incorporate metta into our everyday lives, and I would like to encourage everyone else to do the same. :)

    Love the cartoon on metta meditation and the explanation is right on. From an old Buddhist Monk very happy to see young people making it cool to be good and wise. May the Dhamma overshadow your steps.
