Sati Sārāņīya Hermitage
Though we are facing global disturbance,
imbalance, and social disintegration,
hold fast to sacred values of
truth, kindness, trust, and moral vigor.
We all wish for happiness, well-being, safety, and protection
from the shadow of ignorance in this world.
So hasten to develop the heart’s courage,
stamina, and awareness.
Give up what is harmful to yourself as to all.
As you speak, act, see, and even think,
stand up to what is fearful and unconscionable.
Let us undertake our own inner disarmament
as catalysts for the good.
Caring for each other, as for all beings on earth,
sow seeds of true compassion,
unconditional forgiveness, and peace in this world –
while you still can.
