May no living creature suffer
Commit evil or ever fall ill
May no one be afraid or belittled
with a mind weighed down by depression

May the blind see forms,
the deaf hear sounds.
May those whose bodies are worn with toil
Be restored on finding repose

May the naked find clothing
The hungry find food
May the thirsty find water
and delicious drinks.

May the poor find wealth
Those weak with sorrow find joy
May the forlorn find hope,
constant happiness and prosperity

May there be timely rains
and bountiful harvest
May all medicines be effective
and wholesome prayers bear fruit.

May all who are sick or ill
Quickly be freed from their ailments
Whatever diseases there are in the world
May they never occur again.

May the frightened cease to be afraid
And those bound be freed
May the powerless find power
And may people think of benefiting each other!

This is my most favourite ‘wish’ from a great Indian Master that I often chant
And here is my wish for our world with a photo of where I wish to live!
