Obo's Variation

"May I act with friendliness in thought, word and deed
towards all living things including myself,
whether far or near,
in whatsoever of the ten directions they may abide;
may I sympathize with their pains and sorrows;
may I empathize with their situations;
and may I be at all times objectively detached."
