The purpose of this meditation is to generate a feeling of having repaid all the kindness of our mothers.
I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation and then started by thinking about the friends I have met up with over the past week. They cannot find happiness. They move house, move jobs, redecorate, buy stuff, join clubs etc etc. But they are not perfectly and completely happy.
They are my kind mothers, and they have shown me such kindness in the past in their efforts to make me happy.
I imagined that my very subtle body residing in my heart transformed into a wish fulfilling jewel, and began radiating light across the world. The light touched all living beings and instantly they were filled with happiness. I was repaying their kindness at last. I meditated on this feeling for the rest of the session.
May all living beings find true lasting happiness.
Practice in the Meditation Break
I will try to make people happy, and imagine light radiating from my heart, giving them happiness.
