May 3rd readings. Metta - loving kindness

Since we were swimming around the deep end with the 2nd sermon on not self I thought we would temper that with metta (loving kindness).


Here is another translation that interprets the last line less literally than womb birth.


A question to ponder. If a deep insight into the "person" (aka the 5 aggregates) is not self, why metta?

Extra credit reading.

Simile of the saw (the rather shocking simile is not till the end)
