BUDDHIST EARTH PRAYER

buddhis

Earth Prayer

We gently caress you, the Earth, our planet and our home.
Our vision has brought us closer to you, making us aware of the harm we have done to the life-network upon which we ourselves depend.
We are reminded that we have poisoned your waters, your lands, your air. 
We have filled you with the bones of our dead from war and greed. 
Your pain is our pain.
Touching you gently, we pray that we may become peace-bringers and life-bringers so that our home in its journey around the Sun not become a sterile and lonely place. 
May this prayer and its power last forever.
