Loving Kindness - Metta Meditation
Metta meditation or the loving kindness technique helps direct our compassion and loving-kindness initially towards ourselves, then towards somebody, we love and also to someone we are neutral towards and at the end towards them whom we dislike or have issues with. The practice involves concentration with a silent recitation of words like " may you be happy". The technique helps develop compassion, love, kindness, and empathy towards all around us and towards all beings on this planet. The practice has its roots deep into the Theravada Buddhist philosophies and can significantly boost the practitioner's mental well-being and while reducing stress and anxiety.
