A Blessing for Happiness by Metta Sutta (Stuttanipata)

A Blessing for Happiness
Metta Sutta (Stuttanipata)
Translated by Thich Nhat Hahn

May everyone be happy and safe,
and may their hearts be filled with joy.
May all living beings live in Security and in Peace--
beings who are frail or strong,
tall or short, big or small,
visible or not visible, near or far away,
already born or yet to be born.
may all of them dwell in perfect tranquility.
Let no one do harm to anyone.
Let no one put the life of anyone in danger.
Let no one, out of anger or ill will,
wish anyone any harm.
