Today is Aslalha Puja, or Dharma Day, for Buddhists.
He does not believe
who does not live according to his belief.
~ Thomas Fuller
A Blessing Chant
Just as water flowing in the streams and rivers fills the ocean,
thus may all your moments of goodness touch and benefit all beings,
those here now and those gone before.
May all your wishes be soon fulfilled
as completely as the moon on a full moon night,
as successfully as from the Wish-Fulfilling Gem.
May all dangers be averted; may all disease leave you.
May no obstacles come across your way
and may you enjoy happiness and long life.
May those who are always respectful, honoring the way of the elders,
prosper in the four blessings of old age, beauty, happiness, and strength.
