In gladness and in safety, may you be at ease.

In gladness and in safety, may I be at ease

Everyone deserves metta, or loving kindness, or happiness. The only way to overcome anger is to cultivate loving kindness.

These words coming from Monk’s mouth with the thunders from the sky.12025404_1635563863370509_816311009_n 12207970_1635563806703848_1708934111_n 12226579_1635563816703847_569041320_n 12231350_1635563896703839_1412689319_n

To choose to think of metta or not, that’s the question. The monk answered a young man’s question on how to give loving-kindness to a lion eating a zebra. It’s difficult for us to stop wars, disasters or violence. But we might be able to overcome our own anger or fear by compassionate thinking.
