No joy can equal the joy of serving others.

Prayer for the Unity of All Life
May the winds, the oceans, the herbs, and night and days, the mother earth,
the father heaven, all vegetation, the sun, be all sweet to us.
Let us follow the path of goodness for all times,
like the sun and the moon moving eternally in the sky.
Let us be charitable to one another.
Let us not kill or be violent with one another.
Let us know and appreciate the points of view of others.
And let us unite.
May the God who is friendly, benevolent, all-encompassing, measurer of everything,
the sovereign, the lord of speech, may He shower His blessings on us….
Oh Lord, remove my indiscretion and arrogance, control my mind.
Put an end to the snare of endless desires.
Broaden the sphere of compassion and help me to cross the ocean of existence.
