A Harmonious World
Like the light of the sun, moon, and stars, may love, compassion, and wisdom shine forth. May they strike every single living being and dispel the darkness of ignorance, attachment, and hatred that has lurked for ages in their being. When any living being meets with another, may it be like the reunion of a mother and child who have long been separated. In a harmonious world such as this, may I see everyone sleep peacefully to the music of non-violence. This is my dream.
~ His Holiness the Seventeenth Gyalwa Karmapa, Ogyen Trinley Dorje / From the Foreword of the Kagyu Monlam Book
