Immeasurable metta is sending metta out to all beings in the 6 directions(you do each direction one at a time), exalted is metta radiating from you and spreading out into the universe( state, country, planet, galaxy, universe.. I add metaverse and all planes as well)... don't even need to use words in those and both involve all beings.


Hi Ferox,

But first one has to have some metta to radiate, right? That's where I'm getting a little bit stuck. :broke:

Instructions given in the Karaniya Metta Sutta as well as later elaborations are formulated as a wish. (May this...may that...). The problem is how to make the wish sincere.
