Metta means “loving-kindness”. A loving-kindness meditation offers heartfelt wishes of wellbeing and gratitude to yourself and others. It guides us to cultivate empathy and accept both happiness and sadness with an open heart. Metta meditation helps us to become friends with the full spectrum of humanity and life experience, without judgment.
Metta Is Not ...
Metta meditation is not the same as forcing yourself to think positively or see the glass half-full. “There is no need to feel loving or kind during metta practice. Rather, we meditate on our intentions, however weak or strong they may be. At its heart, loving-kindness practice involves giving expression to our wishes for the well-being and happiness of ourselves or others.” (mettainstitute.org)
