WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK –
THE SEVENTH AND FINAL DAY

THE BUDDHA

Buddha

Let your love flow outward through the universe,
To its height, its depth, its broad extent,
A limitless love, without hatred or enmity.
Then as you stand or walk,
Sit or lie down,
As long as you are awake,
Strive for this with a one-pointed mind;
Your life will bring heaven to earth.

                                                                           Sutta Nipata

+++++++

“Aware of the suffering caused by the destruction of life, I vow to cultivate compassion and learn ways to protect lives of people, animals, plants, and minerals. I am determined not to kill, not to let others kill, and not to condone any killing in the world, in my thinking, and in my way of life.”

Thich Nhat Hanh

+++++++

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
may all beings be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow;
may all beings never be separated from the sacred happiness
which is sorrowless; and may all beings live in equanimity,
without too much attachment and too much aversion,
and live believing in the equality of all that lives.
