Buddha's Teaching on the Eleven Benefits of Metta

"One sleeps easily,

wakes easily,

dreams no evil dreams.

One is dear to human beings,

dear to non-human beings.

The devas protect one.

Neither fire, poison, nor weapons can touch one.

One's mind gains concentration quickly.

One's complexion is bright.

One dies unconfused and —

if penetrating no higher — is headed for the Brahma worlds.
