poetry

May I be well, happy and peaceful. May no harm come to me,
May no difficulties come to me. May I always meet with success.
May I also have patience, courage, understanding, and determination
to meet and overcome the inevitable difficulties, problems and failures in
life. May my parents . . .
May my teachers . . .
May my relatives . . .
May my friends . . .
May all indifferent persons . . .
May my enemies . . .
Be well, happy and peaceful.
May no harm come to them,
May no difficulties come to them.
May they always meet with success.
May they also have patience, courage, understanding, and determination
to meet and overcome the inevitable difficulties, problems and failures in
life. May all living beings be well, happy and peaceful.
May no harm come to them,
May no difficulties come to them.
May they always meet with success.
May they also have patience, courage, understanding, and determination
to meet and overcome the inevitable difficulties, problems and failures in
life.
