Buddhist Military Sangha: Memorial Day 2012

Buddhist Military Sangha: Memorial Day 2012 | Buddhism | Scoop.it

For this year's Memorial Day, let us be mindful of our veterans of the current and past wars, of those especially who are without shelter, let us aid them whenever and wherever we can. May we always be mindful of their existence, and contemplate the meaning of their endeavors for us. May we never disparage them. May we work towards a peaceful world where all may have shelter.

 

"May the Buddhas rest on your head, the Dharma on your eyes, and the Sangha, the abode of all virtues, on your shoulders.

May all those great teachers ever protect you who are dwelling in the center of the Buddha's House on this earth."
- Jinapanjara
