Prayer for Peace

Prayer for Peace

All Buddhas, Bodhissatvas,

Protectors of the Dharma

And the Three Treasures,

With all sentient beings

I lift my heart to transform

Ignorance, violence and suffering.

May healing and peace prevail

Throughout the dharma worlds.

Maha Prajna Paramita.

 

Dedication

 

We dedicate the merits of this prayer

To all victims of war and terrorism,

To the healing of hatred in all countries,

To the wisdom and compassion of our world leaders,

To the peace of the world,

To the abundance of water,

To the healing of the Earth,

And to the harmony of all beings.

Eko

All Buddhas throughout space and time,

All Bodhisattva Mahasattvas,

Maha Prajna Paramita.
