Mettabhavana is an ancient Buddhist meditation leading to the development of unconditional loving-kindness and friendliness. Metta is something you feel in your heart, a positive emotional state towards others as well as ourselves. As a result of practicing metta we become more empathetic, more considerate, more kind, more forgiving, and in general, more loving, friendly people.
Metta practice help us:
- Bring harmony into our lives and in our relationships
- Rid ourselves of internal and external conflicts
- Overcome lacerating guilt
- Be open to loving acceptance of ourselves and others
- Deepen our connections with all beings
