Compassion Poem

"May the blind see forms, may the deaf hear sounds, and just as it was with Mayadevi, may pregnant women give birth without pain.

May the naked find clothing, the hungry find food, may the thirsty find water and delicious drinks.

May the poor find wealth, those weak with sorrow find joy; May the forlorn find new hope, constant happiness, and prosperity.

May all who are sick and ill quickly be freed from their illness, and may every disease in the world never occur again."

- Shantideva
