Friends:

Good is Gentle Well-Wishing for all Sentient Beings!


The Buddha on the Universality of Friendliness:
Sabbe sattā bhavantu sukhitattā.
May all beings become thus Happy!



I am a friend of all bipeds;
I am a friend of those with four feet,
I am a friend of the many-footed,
I am a friend of those with no feet!

Anguttara Nikaya 4.67



One thinks: 'May these beings be free from animosity,
free from oppression, free from trouble, and may they
look after themselves with ease!
Anguttara Nikaya 5

The absence of hate, hating, hatred, the absence of anger, and any malignity,
and the presence of love, friendly kindness, gentle disposition, tender care,
forbearance, genuine considerateness; seeking the general good for all,
compassion this is the very root of good behaviour.
Dhammasangani

As I am, so are others... As others are, so am I...
Having thus identified self and others,
Never Harm anyone, nor have any being abused.
Sutta Nipata 3.710



Among tigers, lions, leopards & bears I lived in the jungle.
No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone.
Uplifted by such universal friendliness, I enjoyed the forest.
Finding great solace in such sweetly silenced solitude...
Suvanna-sama Jātaka 540



With good will for the entire cosmos, cultivate a limitless heart & mind:
Beaming above, below, & all around, unobstructed, without trace of hostility.
Sutta Nipata I, 8



Hurricane/Tzunami preparedness

Train yourself in doing good
that lasts and brings happiness.
Cultivate generosity, the life of peace,
and a mind of infinite universal love.
Itivuttaka 22
