Postby befriend » Thu Sep 01, 2011 7:07 pm

hello,
i know when practicing metta, the practitioner can visualize the person they are wishing well for. is there also another way to hold the person your wishing well for in your mind. can you just say the persons name? like may tim be happy. thank you, metta, Befriend
