May all living beings be well, happy and peaceful, and no harm come to them. May they not be inflicted with difficulties, and may no problems come to them. May they always meet with success; and, may they also have patience, courage, understanding, and determination to meet and overcome inevitable difficulties, problems, and failures in life.
