Day 16 – WISHING LOVE

The following meditation is from The New Meditation Handbook, by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso

16. WISHING LOVE

Purpose: To gain the actual power to bestow pure happiness upon all living beings.

These living beings wish to be happy all the time but they do not know how to fulfill this wish. The happiness they experience from worldly enjoyments is not real happiness – it is just changing suffering, a temporary reduction of previous manifest suffering. None of these countless living beings experiences real and everlasting happiness.

Object of meditation: Generate and hold the strong wish that all living beings experience real and everlasting happiness.

Reflection

I have a strong wish that all living beings experience true and lasting happiness deep within themselves.
