PRAYER OF COMPASSION
Bhikkhu Sanghasena

O! Lord Buddha
the embodiment of compassion and wisdom,
Please accept our most reverential salutation at your lotus
feet.
Kindly bestow your blessings on us to remain always…
A source of happiness for those who are unhappy
A source of water for the thirsty
A source of food for the hungry
A source of healing for those who are ill
A source of light for those in darkness
A source of companionship for those who are lonely
A source of protection for those without protection
A source of help and friendship for all in need
A source of crutches to the broken limbs
A source of parental love and care for the orphans
A source of shelter to the homeless
A source of asylum for those who have no safe place
A source of warmth of real love and compassion
to those abandoned in coldness of war and hatred
May the Buddha be at our heads
May the Dhamma in our hearts and
May the Sangha at our side to protect
and guide us always
May all enjoy real peace, real happiness,
and real harmony.
