This is the audiobook version of this booklet, in which the founder of the Maha Bodhi Society in India explains the ethics, the psychology, the blessings and power of mettā, with instructions on the traditional practice of metta-bhavana meditation.
"But let not metta be mistaken as a mere sentiment. It is the power of the strong. If the leaders from different walks of life were to give metta a fair trial, no principle or guideline to action would be found to possess greater efficiency or fruitfulness in all spheres. If man decides to substitute metta as a policy of action for aggression and ill will, the world will turn into a veritable abode of peace. For it is only when man shall have peace within himself, and boundless goodwill for others, that peace in the world will become enduring." Quoted from the print version.
