Loving Kindness

If just for an instant, for the length of a finger snap, you arouse the feeling of loving kindness and develop it, then your are truly a contemplative. You do not meditate in vain. You are truly following the advice of the Buddha. You deserve the kindness given you. How much better if you cultivate that loving kindness!

from Anguttara Nikaya 1s (I, vi, 3-5)
