Meditation for Equanimity
I'm currently reading "An Open Heart" by His Holiness the Dalai Lama. In it he explains the Meditation for Equanimity; saying that you first focus on a stranger or acquaintance
"for whom you have no strong feeling one way or the other.From there you should meditate impartially , moving on to friends and then enemies.Upon achieving an impartial attitude toward all sentient beings, you should meditate on love, the wish that they find the happiness they seek"
My question is...isn't this essentially praying for people? I guess I sometimes have a hard time differentiating between what is meditation and what is praying.
