Prayer for Peace
I invoke the blessings of omniscient and omnipotent,
I invoke the blessings of All enlightened and realised beings,
I dedicate all the power of positive deeds that I have done and will do.
May the suffering of violence and bloodshed come to an end in this world.
The cause of violence is hatred, greed, jealousy and prides humiliated.
May the people of this world learn to love their neighbours and understand each other.
May we learn to tolerate the varieties of peoples, cultures, beliefs and ideas.
May we be able to clear all misunderstandings and ignorance.
May we be able to help each other and not harm each other.
May we learn to live and let live.
Thanks to Areerat for forwarding this prayer to me and to Andy for introducing Ringu Rinpoche to our lives. May the dharma flourish and virtue spread in all directions!
