In the Change Your Mind Program, we introduced a short reflection where we direct our best wishes to ourselves and others. This is called Metta Bhavana, the cultivation of loving kindness.
I have recently returned from a Metta Course at the Vermont Zen Centre.

For the text of the Metta Sutta, that is the Teaching on Loving Kindness, a beautiful translation of the original Buddhist verse, read it here.
Listen to a commentary on the Sutra here.
