The Four Verses of Fo Guang Shan

  • May palms in every world be joined in kindness, compassion, joy and generosity.
  • May all beings find security in friendship, peace and loving care.
  • May calm and mindful practice give rise to deep patience and equanimity.
  • May we give rise to spacious hearts and humble thoughts of gratitude.
the standing Buddha

"May the Buddha's Light shine upon the ten directions. May the Dharma stream continuously flow towards the five great continents."
