WORLD INTERFAITH HARMONY WEEK –
THE SEVENTH AND FINAL DAY
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.
“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.
