This is my favourite Buddhist mantra which is said for all beings:

May all beings who are subject to birth, aging, disease and death, be happy
May they be without enmity
May they be without malevolence
May they be without physical or mental suffering
May they be happy in both body and mind
May they be able to protect themselves from danger.

Love

Lovely, thank you Lotus flower!

A slight variation which can be said at the end of meditation practice (or before)... or at any other time:

"May all sentient beings have happiness and the causes of happiness.
May all sentient beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.
May all sentient beings have joy and the causes of joy.
May all sentient beings remain in great equanimity, free from attachment and aversion."

I believe this practice is called generating the four immeaserables.

It is a practice used to help us connect with the mind of a boddhisattva who has spontaneous continous wish and motivation to release all sentient beings from suffering.

Beautiful
