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.

Through the round of many births I roamed without reward, without rest, seeking the house-builder. Painful is birth again & again. House-builder, you're seen! You will not build a house again. All your rafters broken, the ridge pole destroyed, gone to the Unformed, the mind has come to the end of craving.
-Dhammapada, 11, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu.
