The Buddha on
Train yourself in doing only pure good, since that lasts,
and brings great long-term happiness!
Cultivate generosity, a peaceful simple living,
and a mentality of infinite friendliness... _/_
Who is hospitable, open-handed, straight, and friendly,
generous, gentle, and always unselfish,
A guide, instructor, a true leader,
such Noble One
will gain great honour... Digha Nikaya 31
For one who deliberately, while fully attentive,
Develops and expands Universal Friendliness,
Experiencing the fading away of
hindrances are worn down thereby!
With good-will for the entire cosmos,
Cultivate a limitless heart and mind:
Beaming above, below, and all around,
Unobstructed, without trace of hostility.
Sutta Nipata I, 8
May all creatures, all breathing and living things,
All beings, one and all, without any exception,
Experience the good fortune of happiness only!
May they not fall into any harm...
Anguttara Nikaya II, 72
