Joy, Peace, and Love, Now and in the New Year

May all beings be happy and at their ease.
May they be joyous and live in safety.
All beings, omitting none, whether weak or strong; small or great; in high, middle or low realms of existence; near or far away; visible or invisible; born or to-be born.

May all beings be happy and at their ease.
Let none deceive another, or despise any being in any state.
Let none wish harm to another.
But even as a mother loves , watches over, and protects her child, her only child; so may all with a boundless mind cherish all living beings, radiating friendliness over the entire world without limit.
May we cultivate a boundless goodwill, free from ill-will or enmity, and maintain the sublime abiding of this recollection.
