And now may God, the Soul of the Universe,
Be pleased with this, my offering of words.
And being pleased, may He give me
This favor in return:
That the crookedness of evil men and women cease,
And the love of goodness grow in them.
May all beings experience from one another
The friendship of the heart.
May the darkness of sin disappear.
May the Universe see the rising of the Sun of Righteousness.
Whatever is desired, may it be received
By every living being.
May the multitude of those who love God
And shower on humankind all forms of blessings;
May they constantly, on this earth,
Come in touch with its living beings.
May this forest of walking Wish-trees,
May this city built of living Wish-gems,
May this talking sea of nectar,
May these moons without dark spots,
May these suns without fierce heat,
May all these ever-good ones
Be the close kin of humankind.
And now in every form of happiness
May there be enjoyment to the full everywhere.
And may the Supreme Being be worshipped
For ever and ever.
