When you radiate
true love, in that moment everyone is your friend. You will be able to see
how nice everyone is, and they will see that you are also very special.
Another power of loving-kindness lies in its ability to overcome serious
obstacles. When Buddha Shakyamuni sat beneath the bodhi tree before his
enlightenment, hundreds of demons were attacking him, but he conquered all
of them by not getting angry. By simply meditating on loving-kindness, he
transformed each one into an ornament of his enlightenment.
