So I’m reading a text, and it gives some Buddhavacana that is simply cited like this: [quote][…]in the Sutta Nipāta is found the famous Mettā Sutta that reads in part as follows:
Whatever living beings there be-
Feeble or strong, tall, stout or medium,
Short, small or large, without exception,-
Seen or unseen,
Those dwelling far or near,
Those who are born,
or who are to be born,
May all being be happy!
[…][/quote] I won’t quote the whole thing, but suffice to say, when I try to find this online, I look at Snp 1.8, Kp 9, AN 7.62, Iti 22, Khp 9, and among those all I can’t seem to find it (I am sure it is somewhere easy-to-find, possibly somewhere I have already looked, it is my Internet-searching skills that fail me here). Where is this quote from?
