Thought of this tonight during a heavy discussion with the kids. We were eating pancakes and enjoying a fabulous dinner prepared by Middle when a discussion of Buddah erupted. Big's reflection this week is from Buddah . . . and it prompted some talk from my childhood about Buddahist services. That made this prayer come bubbling forth.
I am a link in Amida Buddha's golden chain of love that stretches around the world. I will keep my link bright and strong.
I will be kind and gentle to every living thing and protect all who are weaker than myself. I will think pure and beautiful thoughts, say pure and beautiful words, and do pure and beautiful deeds, knowing that my happiness or misery depends on what I do now.
May every link in Amida Buddha's golden chain of love be bright and strong and may we all attain perfect peace.
