May the Divine lead us all to Truth by whatever path suits us. May none make the mistake of thinking theirs is the only correct path. May all be free from egotism. May all develop pure love for their own Ideal.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

MistWho are you, Lord? Who are you really? What is the secret you are keeping?

I close my eyes and look within and glimpse your light in my heart.

But I go to where you hang on a cross, and monks sing about your mercy and grace, and you whisper to me.

And I go to where you sit in deep meditation, and they worship you in many languages and give you flowers, and you make me cry with joy.

And I go to wild places and sit by waters, under ancient trees, and feel some breeze that is more than wind.

And in the briefest of visions, I saw your light in the hearts of others.

You are the mystery of myself and the mystery of all. Reveal your great love to us, and all wrong things will be set right.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

2007 10-09 Camping at LBL 236May or Father in Heaven bless us with compassion and love for one another.

May the Holy One grant us the understanding we need to live a virtuous life.

May the Compassionate Buddha be our refuge, our raft across the ocean of the world.

May Allah, the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate remind us constantly of His infinite love for us.

May sweet Jesus mercifully guide us to the Kingdom of Heaven in our own hearts.

May Thakur Sri Ramakrishna give us guileless, motiveless love for His lotus feet.

Mary and ChildYou have given us more than we can ever understand.

Your precious words have uplifted our hearts. Your life has been our example. Your death inspired us to great sacrifice.

And it all began in the arms of your sweet mother. That you were such a tender thing and in jeopardy even as your mother nursed you, this is a play that I cannot comprehend.

You the bright one who brings light to shadowed places. You who leads the revolution of the heart. You whose greatest challenge to us was, “Love! Love!”

What terrible fate your bore! I hate to think of it.

But I will think of it forever, and know that its meaning is birthed in my life.

Always come back to us. Come back to us.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

Dakshineswar Kali TempleYou hear us call out from the darkness. You hearken to our desperate prayers. You see us deep in the quagmire of the world, and your precious tears pour down. You cannot leave us to walk blindly through the night of our faithlessness.

You are born among us, as one of us, a weak and needy infant, yet the womb in which was conceived the universe and all that is. You walk with us and eat with us, worship with us and suffer with us. Great events decorate your life, and wondrous things are written about you.

Then you die like us. Just like us. And the world grows in light and love for your birth and your death. You gift us with yourself, the greatest of sacrifices.

And you have done it so many times. And you will do it many times more.

Come again, Lord, for countless lives, and stay with us, and remind us, and teach us the way back to you. We have no right to ask this of you, but we will, and we do.

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

All-Compassionate One, be always the foremost thought in my mind.

In illness and health, longing and fulfillment, sadness and bliss,

Grant that I may see you at work and know that it is good.


You are the source of all things, the material of all worlds,

The soul of my soul, heart of my heart,

The air that I breathe and the reason that I am.


For all things should I praise You.

Every moment I should thank You.

With every action, grant that I may worship you.


How can I conceive of Your grandeur,

In whose mind has the universe its being?

Not by anyone can You truly be known.


Yet You dwell as the true self

In the heart of every being.

We are One beyond the mind’s understanding.


Praise and glory and worship to You

For this Grace, this miracle of Being!

The One God, the One Truth,

The All in All,

In every faith, in every heart, everywhere.


Peace, peace, peace be unto all.

All in All

Village_banyanYou are the savior, the blessed son of God, sacrificed for the enlightenment of humankind.

You are the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate, the only one worthy of worship.

You are the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha, in whom all may take refuge, and who ferry the suffering across the ocean of the world.

You are the absolute Existence, Knowledge, and Bliss at the heart of every being; the Truth and the Reality.

You are the Holy One of ancient reverence, giver of the most just law and the inspiration of all peoples.

May I worship you wherever you are worshipped, praise you wherever you are praised, and adore you in every way that you are adored.

Let love for you bring all peoples together!

Peace, peace, peace be unto all.
