May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May all beings rejoice in the well-being of others.
May all beings live in peace, free from greed and hatred.

  1. A LONG VERSION OF THE FOUR IMMEASURABLES

    How wonderful it would be if all sentient beings were to abide in equanimity,
    Free of hatred and attachment!
    May they abide in equanimity!
    I myself will cause them to abide in equanimity!
    Please, guru-Buddha, grant me blessings to be able to do this.

    How wonderful it would be if all sentient beings had happiness and the cause of happiness!
    May they have happiness and its cause!
    I shall cause them to have these!
    Please, guru-Buddha, grant me blessings to be able to do this.

    How wonderful it would be if all sentient beings were free of suffering and its cause!
    May they be free of suffering and its cause!
    I myself will free them from suffering and its cause!
    Please, guru-Buddha, grant me blessings to be able to do this.

    How wonderful it would be if all sentient beings were never separated from the happiness of higher rebirth and liberation!
    May they never separated from the happiness of higher rebirth and liberation!
    I myself will cause them never to be separated from these!
    Please, guru-Buddha, grant me blessings to be able to do this.
