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 you find peace and quiet in the midst of busyness and clamor, then towns and cities become
mountain forests; afflictions are enlightenment, sentient beings realize true awakening.”
