How do I request Metta?
Metta is a Pali word that means “lovingkindness”. There is a tradition of “sending metta” to yourself or other creatures; it is a way of praying for their well-being, using words like these:
May this being be free from danger
May this being be free from mental suffering
May this being be free from physical suffering
May this being live with ease
You may use the Metta form to create a request for metta.
You can ask a teacher to send metta to a specific person, a group of people, an animal, or to all sentient beings.
