the next Buddha…

“It is possible that the next Buddha will not take the form of an individual.

The next Buddha may take the form of a community —

a community practicing understanding and loving kindness,

a community practicing mindful living.

This may be the most important thing we can do for the survival of the Earth.”

– Thich Nhat Hanh –

a Buddhist prayer for peace…

images

May I become at all times, both now and forever
A protector for those without protection
A guide for those who have lost their way
A ship for those with oceans to cross
A bridge for those with rivers to cross
A sanctuary for those in danger
A lamp for those without light
A place of refuge for those who lack shelter
And a servant to all in need.
