May the poor find wealth.
Those weak with sorrow find joy;
May the forlorn find new hope, constant happiness and prosperity.
May the frightened cease to be afraid and those bound be free;
May the weak find power,
And may their hearts join in friendship.
~ Shantideva's Bodhisattva Caryavatara, 8th Century
“When we remember who we really are, we bring together the universal with the personal. Instead of
becoming more disembodied or rigidly spiritual, we have a sense of humor about the whole dance of
life, and everything becomes easier and lighter.”
