happy vesak 2010

For those that celebrated it last night, will celebrate it tonight or in the coming days, Happy Vesak! My favorite reading, the Mettā Sutta:

He abides, having suffused with a mind of loving-kindness
one direction of the world,
likewise the second, likewise the third, likewise the fourth,
and so above, below, around and
everywhere, and to all as to himself;
he abides suffusing the entire universe with loving-kindness,
with a mind grown great, lofty, boundless and
free from enmity and ill will.
