The purpose of this meditation is to generate the feeling of joy at having shared with each and every living being complete and permanent happiness.
I began by making the appropriate preparations for meditation and then started by remembering my love for all other living beings. They have been so kind to me – how can I ever harm them or be angry with them? I remembered from yesterday how they cannot find the happiness they seek, no matter how hard they try. I resolved to give them happiness. I imagined my Buddhanature growing in my heart, transforming into a wish fulfilling jewel. I imagined it filled with golden light. The light grew brighter until my heart was lost in its brightness. The light grew in intensity until my body also dissolved into pure golden light – the light of bliss. The light continued to grow in intensity until light rays filled the universe, touching each and every living being with pure happiness. They experienced complete and permanent bliss, and so did I.
I focused on this feeling for the rest of the meditation.
May all living beings find permanent happiness.
