Welcome May

May Newsletter (Metta May!)

As soon as I wrote the title Welcome May  the Metta prayer/mantra (metta bhavana) came to mind, used as part of a loving kindness meditation, a popular Buddhist tradition.  The word, metta, comes from Pali and can be translated as “good will” or “loving kindness.”  The practice of Metta meditation is a beautiful one.

During  metta meditation, you recite positive phrases toward yourself and other people. The practice aims to foster a mental state of kindness, love, and compassion. When done regularly, metta meditation can help minimize negative emotions toward yourself and others.

There are many variations of the metta prayer of loving kindness, but one of them is, “May all beings everywhere be happy. May they be healthy. May they be at peace. May they be free.”  

Why not make May ~ Metta May and foster loving kindness and compassion.
