Metta Sutta

Metta Sutta - Shakyamuni Buddha. Advice - Benedict of Nursia

Benedict of Nursia gives remarkably similar advice to Shakyamuni Buddha on the way of peace/goodness from a Christian perspective.


This is what should be done
By one who is skilled in goodness,
And who knows the path of peace:
Let them be able and upright,
Straightforward and gentle in speech.
Humble and not conceited,
Contented and easily satisfied.
Unburdened with duties and frugal in their ways.
Peaceful and calm, and wise and skillful,
Not proud and demanding in nature.
Let them not do the slightest thing
That the wise would later reprove.
Wishing: In gladness and in saftey,
May all beings be at ease.
Whatever living beings there may be;
Whether they are weak or strong, omitting none,
The great or the mighty, medium, short or small,
The seen and the unseen,
Those living near and far away,
Those born and to-be-born,
May all beings be at ease!

Let none deceive another,
Or despise any being in any state.
Let none through anger or ill-will
Wish harm upon another.
Even as a mother protects with her life
Her child, her only child,
So with a boundless heart
Should one cherish all living beings:
Radiating kindness over the entire world
Spreading upwards to the skies,
And downwards to the depths;
Outwards and unbounded,
Freed from hatred and ill-will.
Whether standing or walking, seated or lying down
Free from drowsiness,
One should sustain this recollection.
This is said to be the sublime abiding.
By not holding to fixed views,
The pure-hearted one, having clarity of vision,
Being freed from all sense desires,
Is not born again into this world.


Advice
From Centenario, Rule, IV

What are the rules for living a good life?
In the first place to love the Lord with all one's heart, with all one's soul and with all one's strength.
Then, to love one's neighbor as oneself.

To respect all people.
And not to do to others what one would not wish to have done to oneself.
To deny oneself in order to follow Christ.

To help the poor.
To clothe the naked.
To visit the sick.
To bury the dead.
To assist those in distress.
To console the afflicted...
Not to let anything come before the love of Christ.
Not to give rein to one's wrath.
Not to meditate revenge.
Not to harbor deceit in one's heart.
Not to offer a pretended peace.
Not to forsake charity.
Not to swear, for fear of perjury.
To speak the truth from heart and mouth.
Not to render evil for evil.
Not to commit injustice but to bear patiently what is done to oneself.
To love one's enemies.
Not to render cursing for cursing, but rather blessing.
To endure prosecution for righteousness' sake.
To place one's hope in God.
If one sees any good in oneself, to ascribe it to God, not to oneself.

Every day to keep death present before one's eyes..
Not to hate anyone.
Not to entertain jealousy.
Not to give oneself up to envy.
To respect the aged.
To love the young.
In the love of Christ to pray for one's enemies.
After a disagreement, to make peace before the sun goes down.
And never to despair of God's mercy.

Such are the tools of the spiritual art.

Benedict of Nursia
(480-547)
