Cultivating kindness

 

hugs

With every act of kindness,

The way grows clearer.

With every act of caring,

The way grows smoother.

I rejoice in every act of kindness

Great of small,

Near or far,

Known or unknown,

Ordinary or extraordinary.

I rejoice in every act of caring

Great or small,

Near or far,

Known or unknown,

Ordinary or extraordinary.

May kindness and caring

Blossom within me,

And within all sentient existence.

May wisdom and compassion

Blossom within me,

And within all sentient existence.

May gratitude and serenity

Blossom within me,

And within all sentient existence.

Breath after breath,

Minute after minute,

Hour after hour,

Day after day,

Week after week,

Month after month,

Year after year,

Life after life,

As I attain the unexcelled

Peace, serenity and bliss

of Nirvana.
