Buddhist Prayer of the Day
May the Buddhas Smile Upon Us
May the buddhas and bodhisattvas smile upon us with compassion and continue to turn the wheel of Dharma. May all beings be free from suffering and its causes. May all beings have happiness and its causes. May we all quickly achieve liberation and samsara and and may the Buddha always appear in the world as long as there is one being who is not yet free.
