Section 1: A Buddhist Prayer for Peace

May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their illnesses. May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free. May the powerless find power and may people think of befriending one another. May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wildernesses - the children, the aged, the unprotected - be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood. - U.N. Day of Prayer for World Peace

Section 2: Earth Prayer

We gently caress you, the Earth, our planet and our home. Our vision has brought us closer to you, making us aware of the harm we have done to the life-network upon which we ourselves depend. We are reminded that we have poisoned your waters, your lands, your air. We have filled you with the bones of our dead from war and greed. Your pain is our pain. Touching you gently, we pray that we may become peace-bringers and life-bringers so that our home in its journey around the Sun not become a sterile and lonely place. May this prayer and its power last forever. - Sensei Ulrich, Manitoba Buddhist Temple

Section 3: Water Flows

Water flows over these hands. May I use them skillfully to preserve our precious planet. - Thich Nhat Hahn

Section 4: Well, Happy and Peaceful

May I be well, happy, and peaceful. May my teachers be well, happy, and peaceful. May my parents be well, happy, and peaceful. May my relatives be well, happy, and peaceful. May my friends be well, happy, and peaceful. May the indifferent persons be well, happy, and peaceful. May the unfriendly persons be well, happy, and peaceful. May all meditators be well, happy, and peaceful. May all beings be well, happy, and peaceful. - Buddhist Prayer
