Here are a couple of excerpts from the collection.
Brahma Viharas prayer:
May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness,
May all be free from sorrow and the bonds that entangle us.
May no one be away from sacred happiness,
Bringing freedom, living peace to all lives.
Not loving just my dear ones while being unfriendly to another,
May I live more peacefully, acknowledging each being is born unique.
Confident in one’s own nature,
Understanding the unfolding heart of compassion,
A pathway to living,
Guiding and supportive,
A vast potential,
Same in every life.
