Metta Prayer

May I  dwell in the heart
May I be free from suffering,
May I be healed,
May I know my own wholeness,
May I live in peace and be happy.

This Buddhist prayer, known as the ‘Metta Prayer’, for healing is designed to be repeated several times.  

Say it first for yourself.
Then for someone you love “May you dwell in the heart”…
Then for someone you don’t love, or maybe even actively dislike, or who has offended you “May you dwell in the heart”….
Finally, offer it for the world, “May we (or “all beings”) dwell in the heart”….
