Prayer of Gratitude, Love and Compassion

Meditation of the Heart, Melbourne- Aruna Giri

What great fortune to have my basic needs and requirements met, to have clean water and food to nourish the body.

What gratitude and love I have for Life and this precious birth, so I may enquire into the nature of existence.

May I have deep heart-felt compassion for the suffering of others.
May all beings be free of all tendencies and restrictions of the mind, so that their suffering may end, and the peace and stillness of their true nature can shine unobstructed.

May all beings be peaceful.
May all beings be content.
May all beings be happy.
