Starting Meditation
⊕ Body, breath, and mind held in perfect oneness, I send my heart along with the sound of the this bell. May the hearers awaken from forgetfulness and transcend the path of anxiety and sorrow.
⊕ Listen, listen, this wonderful sound brings me back to my true home.
Starting Meditation ⊕
⊕ “Let us be at peace with our bodies and our minds.
Let us return to ourselves and become wholly ourselves.
Let us be aware of the source of being,
common to us all and to all living things.
Evoking the presence of the Great Compassion,
let us fill our hearts with our own compassion—
towards ourselves and towards all living beings.
Let us pray that we ourselves cease to be
the cause of suffering to each other.
With humility, with awareness of the existence of life,
and of the suffering that are going on around us,
let us practice the establishment of peace in our hearts and on earth.”
~Thích Nhất Hạnh
