Body Image
Learning to accept our appearance

A prayer for everyone dealing with attachments to body image and discontent with how they look.

May all beings learn to accept themselves.

May no one suffer because of discontent with the way she appears.

May society learn to look beyond body shape

May all those struggling with diets realize there is more to living than how much they weigh

May those with eating disorders, both over eating and under eating, free themselves from their attachment to looks and food

May every one see the body for what it really is, impermanent.

May we all stop clinging to the idea of "self" and recognize that our physical appearances are not who we are.

Please pray for everyone attached to their looks and body shape, that we all may be liberated some day from this obsession.

"Beautiful face, beautiful body. It does not matter how beautiful it is, it will eventually decompose to a skeleton."- His Holiness the Dalai Lama
