After we admired the mandala and other works of Buddhist art including amazing sculptures the monk gathered all who wanted to participate in a meditation upstairs. It was truly a beautiful meditation for peace and happiness for all. What I found extremely uplifting was a prayer that he offered at the end of the meditation. It was a prayer that I had given copies of to my students this week and that I had prayed before my family's Thanksgiving meal this past year.
I share it with all of you tonight.
