Vesak Day is celebrated by Buddhist worldwide and, today, our lives have changed with a worldwide on-going pandemic. Metta is the Pali word for “loving-kindness” or “boundless love” we practice Metta by invoking a “strong wish for the well-being and happiness of others”. #OneMettaApart advocates the practice of Metta for oneself and others and for us to be as mindful as possible in our daily thoughts, speech and bodily actions. Metta brings people’s hearts and minds closer without barriers and biases in this trying period.
