Prayer for Burmese

deep bow to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha 

 As a fellow buddhist, I can no longer remain silent.

Here and now, This is my prayer to the Burmese.

 I pray for the Sangha,

Metta is what you got for the beneft of all Burmese.
If you are still breathing, The chances are still there.
You know this is not the end of the day,
you will know that Metta alone is not adequate,
you will need wisdom and courage to handle the situation.

You may not be able to go out for the Alms-round today,
If you are hungry to support the physical need,
You know starving will make you more awakened to realize what is going on.
You can not be defeated by the hunger.
As millions of Burmese are still hungry for the Freedom and Peace out there.
By the Virtue of triple gem, we will support you from outside of Burma.

I pray for the fellow Buddhist of Burma:

The sufferings are impermenent,
so is the dictatorship.
Your suffers are our suffers,
But your suffers will end very soon.
Because the country needs to be transformed
but you have to transform yourself first.
The Freedom and Peace are not granted,
but it can be earned if you act it right.
Please support your Sangha.

I pray for the Buddha:

The majority people in Burma about over 85% are fellow Buddhist.
They are now suffering, helpless and in great danger.
They are eager for a change of better life.
Majority of fellow Buddhist take 5 precepts in Burma.
They deserve a more peaceful and harmony life.
Metta are taught and widely spreaded in Burma.
Burmese protested with bare hands and un-armed.
Their voices must be carefully heard.
Their humble demands for a democracy must be carefully considered.
They have been suffered enough for two decades already.

Breath in ………and breath out.
Breath in ………and breath out.
Breath in……….and breath out

May all Burmese be free from sufferings.
May all Burmese be blessed with Peace and Happy on your journey.
May the Buddha bless you all.

Reverence to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha.

Deep Bow,
