The practice of loving kindness, also known as metta in the Buddhist tradition, is a way of cultivating compassion and kindness towards oneself and others. It involves the repetition of phrases that express well-wishes and loving kindness towards oneself and others, such as “may all beings be happy and healthy.” The purpose of this practice is to cultivate a sense of care and connection with oneself and others, and to promote feelings of well-being and contentment. Some people also practice loving kindness meditation, which involves sitting in a comfortable position and focusing on the repetition of loving kindness phrases, either silently or out loud, while allowing other thoughts to pass through the mind without getting caught up in them.
