Blessing - now available

Every once in a while I ask my pals the Boddhisatvas for blessings. You should similarly call on blessings for those in need. You may be in need. Formally call for help with prostrations. Dedicate merit or practice. Resonate a little or a lot ...

    Somewhere between our ears, our temples, our perfect Buddhist masters, our good intentions, there exists reality ...

    'Just this', as the zenniths say.

    meanwhile a blessing ...

    Just as the soft rains fill the streams,
    pour into the rivers and join together in the oceans,
    so may the power of every moment of your goodness
    flow forth to awaken and heal all beings,
    Those here now, those gone before, those yet to come.
    By the power of every moment of your goodness
    May your heart's wishes be soon fulfilled
    as completely shining as the bright full moon,
    as magically as by a wish-fulfilling gem.

    By the power of every moment of your goodness
    May all dangers be averted and all disease be gone.
    May no obstacle come across your way.
    May you enjoy fulfillment and long life.

    For all in whose heart dwells respect,
    who follow the wisdom and compassion, of the Way,
    May your life prosper in the four blessings
    of old age, beauty, happiness and strength.

    OM HA HUM

    Bodhisattva Prayer for Humanity

    May I be a guard for those who need protection
    A guide for those on the path
    A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood
    May I be a lamp in the darkness
    A resting place for the weary
    A healing medicine for all who are sick
    A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
    And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
    May I bring sustenance and awakening
    Enduring like the earth and sky
    Until all beings are freed from sorrow
    And all are awakened.

    May the fearstruck be free from fear,
    May the grieving be free from grief,
    May the suffering be free from suffering.
    So, too, may all beings be.

    Could you cite the source, please? (Many quotes, attributed to The Buddha, are in fact, at best, close inventions, at worst, fakes.... :) )

    A little googling and as best I can tell is that it is part of a metta prayer from the Bhavana Society.

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Moderator

    Thanks, @person. So not a direct quote. I suspected as much. :)

  • eugenioeugenio Appalachia New

    Apologies. I am usually keen to source things and avoid misattributing things to the Buddha as the web is rife with that. Is it possible to edit our posts?

  • federicafederica seeker of the clear blue sky Moderator

    Nope, not after a pre-determined period. (I believe it's 15 minutes).

    After that, you gotta ask me.... :D
