The purpose of this meditation was to generate the wish that all living beings can be free from their suffering.
After making the appropriate preparations for meditation I brought to mind my cherishing love for all living beings. I then contemplated how each and every living being in Samsara experiences suffering and after after life, endlessly.
I slowly developed the wish that they could be free from suffering. It felt like I wanted to call them off their suffering: to separate them from their suffering. When this feeling was strong I focused on it as my object of meditation.
I and all living beings develop great compassion.
Practice in the meditation break
I will try to see how every living being suffers and wish them to be free from this suffering.
