Buddhist Prayer of the Day
Going to Sleep
Falling asleep at last
I vow with all beings
To enjoy the dark and the silence
And rest in the vast unknown.

The world's end can never be reached by means of traveling through the world, Yet without reaching the world's end there is no release from suffering. Therefore, truly, the world-knower, the wise one, gone to the world's end, fulfiller of the holy life, having known the world's end, at peace, longs not for this world or another.
