The Sutta-Nipāta

May all be blessed with peace always; all creatures weak or strong,
all creatures great and small; creatures unseen or seen dwelling afar or near, born or awaiting birth,
—may all be blessed with peace!

. . . as with her own life a mother shields from hurting her own,
her only child, —let all-embracing thoughts for all that lives be thine, —an all-embracing love for all the universe.
