Metta is the Pali word for Lovingkindness. The practice of lovingkindness is a meditation in which we wish ourselves and others well. It is traditionally a silent meditation practice.

This chant originated from the lovingkindness phrases I learned and practiced on an eight-day silent Metta retreat at the Insight Meditation Society. I was pregnant with my son Pavan at the time and as I was repeating the phrases this melody just came upon me. The melody ran in my head for a few years before I began singing it with my older daughter Lila. I recorded the chant with Devadas Labrecque after much prompting by my dear friend Nina Rao. Sharon Salzberg, who I have had the good fortune to work with and study with for many years, added her voice to the recording.

May we be happy and peaceful
May we be healthy and strong
May we be safe and protected
May we live with ease

May all be happy and peaceful
May all be healthy and strong
May all be safe and protected
May all live with ease
