主題:Compassion & Justice.

Invocation


Lord Buddha,
You have taught us not about justice
But about karma
And about the Principle of Cause and Effect
They are the laws of nature.
As we act, we are responsible,
For the consequences, good or bad.
No one can escape their karma
That is what the world calls justice.

Lord Buddha,
You have taught us not about love
But about compassion
And about the equality of all beings
Because we all have the Buddha nature
That we may all realize the Truth.
Yet we all still have greed and anger,
So we make mistakes, and harm each other,
And make ourselves suffer.
When we see evil, it is not evil, but ignorance.
True compassion is the willingness
To help each other remove ignorance,
So we may become wise, and harm no more.
This is what the world calls love.

Lord Buddha,
With your teachings on karma, equality, and compassion,
May we attain peace within our hearts,
And peace in this world.
