Love: Reflection & Action

Maitreya* Bodhisattva, the loving one,
contemplates how to guide beings with love…
reminding us not to dread helping others,
that there’s no need to frown** when wondering how.

*’Maitreya’ (Sanskrit) or ‘Metteya’ (Pali) means the one with Metta (Loving-kindness).
** Frowning here is a sign of fret or aversion, which is the opposite of Metta.
