Buddhist Prayer for Peace

Buddhist Prayer for Peace

May all beings everywhere

plaguedwith sufferings of body and mind


quickly be freed from their illnesses.


May those frightened cease to be afraid,


and may those bound be free.


May the powerless find power,


and may people think of befriending one another.


May those who find themselves in trackless,fearful wilderness ~


the children, the age, the unprotected ~


be guarded by beneficial celestials,and


may they swiftly attain Buddhahood
