  • Traditional Blessing and Healing Chant

    Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
    Pour into the rivers, and join together in the oceans,
    So may the power of every moment of your goodness
    Flow forth to awaken and heal all beings:
    Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.

    By the power of every moment of your goodness,
    May your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled
    As completely shining as the bright full moon,
    As magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

    By the power of every moment of your goodness,
    May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
    May no obstacle come across your way.
    May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

    For all those in whose heart dwells respect,
    Who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
    May your life prosper in the four blessings
    Of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.

    The Three Jewels

    I take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha
    Until I attain Enlightenment.
    By merit accumulations from practicing generosity and other perfections
    May I attain Enlightenment, for the benefit of all sentient beings.

    Prayer for Freedom From Suffering

    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 wilderness-
    the children, the aged, the unprotected-
    be guarded by beneficent celestials,
    And may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.

    - The Buddha
