I am forever thankful to all my precious gurus
For showing me the way of the Buddha
So I may choose to live a life
Anger and ignorance,
Filled with unconditional love,
With infinite compassion and
Free of the clinging ghosts of past misdeeds.
Days unfolding slowly in the gentle warmth of the radiance of
The Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, and
Guided by the vinaya
Days of quiet contentment made meaningful by cherishing others,
A simple life well-lived.
