The purpose of this meditation was to develop a mind full of the wish that all living beings could be happy.

I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation and then brought to mind the various members of my family. We were naming a day out today and I wanted to cherish them all. I imagined each of them in turn and focused on what each of them need in their lives right now. I made the determination that I would try to give the what they need, and hopefully make them happy. After a while I felt a welling up of love for my family and I focused on it for the rest of the meditation.

Dedication

May all living beings be happy.

Practice in the Meditation Break

I tried to give each of my family what they needed: attention, reassurance, love and respect.
