Here I am sharing the words of our wonderful Venerable Ayya Tathaaloka and the wishes of all the bhikkhunis of Aranya Bodhi and Dhammadharini Vihara in California.
May we give rise to all that is wholesome, healthy, helpful, beneficial, peaceful, benign, sublime and liberating.
May all else fall away and arise no more.
As we move into the season of increasing light, may we know the increase of good qualities in our lives, in our hearts.
May our applied and directed thoughts, internal and externally directed be beneficial, healthy, helpful, wholesome, peaceful and sublime.
May we care well for whatever lies before us,
and for where we are right now.
In each step.
In moments of immanence,
in present moment awareness,
knowing the amazing gift
and the amazing opportunity
in what we are meeting here and now.
And may we be a support for one another in this Way,
to all as for ourselves.
May we rejoice, with joy and gladness in our hearts
knowing the good this is,
and for one another.
on this peaceful and silent night,
all calm, hearts bright,
with much metta ~
with Ayya Sobhana, Ayya Suvijjana and Ayya Nimmala
