It’S HuMaN SCalE tHAt COUntS

 

May I be a guard for those who need protection

A guide for those on the path

A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood

May I be a lamp in the darkness

A resting place for the weary

A healing medicine for all who are sick

A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles

And for the boundless multitudes of living beings

May I bring sustenance and awakening

Enduring like the earth and the sky

Until all beings are free from sorrow

And all are awakened


Words by Shantideva, a Buddhist sixth-century wise man
