Buddhist Prayer for Peace

May all beings everywhere plagued with sufferings of body and mind quickly be freed from their illnesses.
May those frightened cease to be afraid, and may those bound be free.
May the powerless find power, and may people think of befriending one another.
May those who find themselves in trackless, fearful wildernesses — the children, the aged, the unprotected - be guarded by beneficent celestials, and may they swiftly attain Buddhahood.

Celestial Protectors

Repeat this prayer with offerings during this time when so many in our world are struggling to walk the path of freedom and leave the realms of suffering behind. May we embody Pure Land energies for the benefit of all sentient beings. May we serve those around us to the best of our ability with wisdom and with compassionate hearts.
