May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!
Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all things:
Radiating kindness over the entire world,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
