Prayer for New Year - 2003
By Ven. Shih Ying-Fa
Abbot, Cloud Water Zendo, Zen Center of Cleveland, Ohio

May our compassion, wisdom and loving kindness dissolve the poisons of greed, hatred and delusion.

Through our compassion may we constantly work to end the suffering of all sentient beings, feeding those who have little or no food, sheltering those who are homeless, comforting those who are unwell, and assisting those who abuse substances, sexuality and each other. May we become a refuge for those in need.

Through our wisdom may we truly see that all life is interconnected and respect it accordingly. May our wisdom build bridges of understanding to span the many chasms of divisiveness. May our wisdom help us to end prejudice of all kinds; may we have respect for all cultures and races; and may we show deep respect for all faiths, recognizing each of them as paths to True Understanding.

Through our loving kindness may we put an end to fear, prejudice and hate, bringing peace to all and ending the scourge of war. May we see, as the Buddha said, that hate does not put an end to hate, that only love can end hate. May we share what we have, both spiritually and materially, so that all beings will benefit.

May all beings have True Happiness; may all beings be freed from suffering and its causes; may all beings be one with the Highest Perfect Joy; may all beings dwell in equanimity, freed from discrimination and attachment; and may all beings dwell at last in the Realm of Perfect Peace.
