Metta Meditation Practice
Loving Kindness Meditation
Metta meditation is a form of meditation that involves cultivation of loving-kindness. It begins with sitting on a cushion, a chair, or lying down comfortably in silence. Instead of quieting the mind like in regular meditation, metta meditation involves expressing loving-kindness towards oneself, towards one's loved ones, friends, acquaintances, enemies, and finally towards all beings.
This form of meditation brings about compassion for one's self and towards all sentient beings. It is a peaceful and loving act that resonates throughout your whole being and towards your community of friends, lovers, and enemies.
Sitting and chanting any number of loving phrases will help bring about a pleasant feeling to your surroundings and to your own self. It is an excellent therapy for anyone seeking treatment for depression or anger management. Altogether, this is an excellent form of meditation for anyone.

Repetition of Phrases
Repeating several simple phrases for 30 minutes at a time will quiet the mind and bring about a loving inner peace. It sounds very simple and it is simple!
Below are some words to repeat and chant while you sit in mediation:
