Learning to Love, Loving to Learn

May is for Metta.

Metta is loving kindness. This technique taught by the Buddha is a simple yet transformational practice of well wishing. It is a way of opening our hearts and letting love and kindness pour in for ourselves, our loved ones, our wider community members, the difficult people in our lives and, ultimately, all beings.

May has 31 days, so here are 31 daily aspirations to guide our metta meditation practice for the month. May they be of benefit!
