Buddhist Prayer of the Day

Prayer for Freedom From Suffering

I pray to every divine being, every Buddha, Bodhisattva, Arhat, spirit, protector of the Dharma, god and goddess. Please allow our Earth to become liberated from all forms of suffering. Please allow us to become enlightened, to experience Nirvana. Namaste. Gassho.

Buddhist Quote of the Day

The brief elation we experience appeasing sensual impulses is very close to what the drug addict feels when indulging his or her habit. Temporary relief is soon followed by a craving for more. And in just the same way that taking drugs in the end only causes trouble, so too does much of what we undertake to fulfill our immediate sensory desires. We must acknowledge that there can be no hope of gratifying the senses permanently. At best, the happiness we derive from eating a good meal can only last until the next time we are hungry.

-His Holiness the Dalai Lama
