Mettā Sutta

1. Mettā Sutta.– The idea of goodwill, if cultivated, leads to much profit. S.v.131.

2. Mettā Sutta.– On four kinds of persons to be found in the world — those who irradiate all quarters with goodwill, compassion, sympathetic-joy, and equanimity. These are born after death in various Brahma worlds; if they happen to be disciples of the Buddha, they will no more return to the world of men. A.ii.128.

3. Mettā Sutta.– Very similar to the above. Such persons are born, after death, in the Suddhāvāsa Brahmaloka. A.ii.129.

4. Mettā Sutta.– When a man has developed emancipation of the mind through goodwill, compassion, sympathy and equanimity, by the signless (animitta) and getting rid of the thought “I am,” it cannot, be said of him that he has failed to find escape from the opposite qualities. A.iii.290 f.

5. Mettā Sutta.– Nine qualifications which, if they accompany the observance of the fast days, make such observance fruitful — the eight precepts (abstention from killing, etc.), and irradiating the world with thoughts of goodwill. A.iv.388 f.

6. Mettā Sutta.– Eleven advantages that come from the development of goodwill towards all beings. A.v.342.
