Maitri – Loving Kindness

Posted on July 24, 2018


Maitri is a Sanskrit word. It means “loving kindness” or “benevolence”. Through my daily practice of Vipassana meditation I am on the path of developing Maitri. Towards others and myself. The by-products of Maitri are non-judgemental attitude, flexibility and inner peace.

A fountain
A stream
An ocean
A tree
All encompassed
Within me.

A tool
A tale
A shawl
A veil
Every trick to
Help me heal

It shows me how
It tells me why
It encourages me
To give it a try
To sit in silence
With closed eyes

Till I become it
And it becomes me,
This is my journey
To Maitri.
