Blessing all Beings by Beautiful Bliss:

The Blessed Buddha Once said:

 I am a friend and helper to all, I am sympathetic to all living beings.
 I develop a mind full of love, and
delight always in harmlessness.
 I gladden my mind, fill it with joy, immovable and unshakable..
 I develop these divine states of mind not trained by anyone...
 Theragatha. 648-9

 I am a friend of the footless, I am a friend of the bipeds;
 I am a friend of those with 4 feet, I am a friend of the many-footed.
 Thereby the footless does not harm me, nor does the bipeds harm me.
Thereby do neither those with 4 feet, nor with many feet ever harm me...
 Anguttara Nikāya II 72


 Thus he who both day and night takes delight in complete harmlessness
 sharing love with all that lives, finds enmity with none. Samyutta Nikāya. I 208

 One with a mind of love feels compassion for the entire world
 above, below and across, unlimited and everywhere. Jātaka 37
 Among tigers, lions, leopards & bears I lived on the forest.
 No one was frightened of me, nor did I fear anyone.
 Uplifted by such universal friendliness I enjoyed the forest.
 Finding great solace in this free sweetly silenced solitude.
 Suvanna-sama Jātaka 540
