We and every part of the universe including humankind, animal, landscape and nature are one and sacred. If we harm or spoil any tiny particle of this interconnected universe we harm or spoil ourselves.

One who determines to purify the heart by eradicating harmful thoughts and cultivating noble respect and boundless love to humankind, animal, landscape and nature, follows all the happiness, security, prosperity and well-being.

May this heart of respect and boundless love pervade the whole world above, below and across, with no obstruction, no hatred and no enmity.

Dukkappatta ca niddukkha – Bhayappatta ca nibbhaya

Sokappatta ca nissoka – Hontu sabbe’pi panino 

Let those who are in misery, Be free from misery

Let those who are in fear, Agony and insecurity,

Be free from fear, agony and insecurity.

Let those who are in sorrow,

Be free from sorrow.

And let all living beings,

Be free from misery, fear and sorrow.

May no fear affect any one! May no illnesses afflict any one! May no dangers come any one’s way! May every one enjoy good health and prosperity all trough out the New Year 2012 and all the time!

May all your wholesome deeds help you to develop perfections (parami) and generate your bodhi mind towards the Bliss of ever Lasting Happiness Nibbana! May all the devas (divine beings) protect you and all in your family!

Just as the soft rains fill the streams,

pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans,

so may the power of every moment of your goodness

flow forth to awaken and heal all beings,

Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.


By the power of every moment of your goodness

May your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled

as completely shining as the bright full moon,

as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.


By the power of every moment of your goodness

May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.

May no obstacle come across your way.

May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.


For all in whose heart dwells respect,

who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,

May your life prosper in the four blessings

of old age, beauty, happiness and strength
