Great Compassion Prayer

Great Compassion Prayer

The beauty of this prayer spoke to us with great directness and simplicity. May we all take its message into our hearts, so we can become clearer channels for love.

Oneness of Life and Light,
Entrusting in your Great Compassion,
May you shed the foolishness in myself,
Transforming me into a conduit of Love.
May I be a medicine for the sick and weary,
Nursing their afflictions until they are cured;
May I become food and drink,
During time of famine,
May I protect the helpless and the poor,
May I be a lamp,
For those who need your Light,
May I be a bed for those who need rest,
and guide all seekers to the Other Shore.
May all find happiness through my actions,
and let no one suffer because of me.
Whether they love or hate me,
Whether they hurt or wrong me,
May they all realize true entrusting,
Through Other Power,
and realize Supreme Nirvana.
Namo Amida Buddha

From Wendy’s column
Every person with whom I interact today
will be affected to some degree by me. I
can persuade them, however slightly, or
significantly, to be kinder, happier, and
more serene. And if I happen to
succeed in tipping the scales in the right
direction, then I have made a positive
difference in the world.

I really love this prayer. Though I am a Christian, I feel it applies for all of us. We need to be an open channel so that God can express Himself through us to others.
