Maitrī Meditation: lokaḥ samastaḥ sukhino bhavantuḥ

Excerpt from the Bṛhadāraṇyaka Upaniad 1.4.14:

Sarve sukhino bhavantuḥ (May all be happy)
Sarve janaḥ sukhino bhavantuḥ (May all people be happy)
Sarva jīva jantu sukhino bhavantuḥ (May all beings be happy)
Lokaḥ samastaḥ sukhino bhavantuḥ (May the whole world be happy)

Maitrī (मैत्रि) (Loving Kindness) Prayer:

May I be happy
May I be peaceful
May I be free from all negativity
May I be aware of the light of my true nature

May you be happy
May you be peaceful
May you be free from all negativity
May you be aware of the light of your true nature

Thereafter send it out to the world:

May all beings be happy
May all beings be peaceful
May all beings be free from negativity
May all beings awaken to the light of their true nature
