Thoughts for meditation, contemplation, and reflection
Dharma Master Cheng Yen
Founder of the Buddhist Tzu Chi Foundation
With loving-kindness, compassion, joy, and equanimity,
let us embody selflessness.
With hearts united and sharing the same Dharma,
let us practice giving without expectations.
May we merge our limited selves into the greater self
so that our love can be without boundaries,
without distinctions between self and others.
Let us turn our limited love
into long-lasting compassion and great love.
With faultless virtues and infinite love,
may we become a canopy that protects all people in this world.
