Reflections on Universal Well Being (Traditional Theravadan chant)

Pali:

Ahaṃ sukhito homi, niddukkho homi, avero homi, abyāpajjho homi, anīgho homi, sukhi attānaṃ pariharāmi.

 

Sabbe sattā sukhitā hontu, sabbe sattā averā hontu, sabbe sattā abyāpajjhā hontu, sabbe sattā anīgha hontu, sabbe sattā sukhi attānaṃ pariharantu.

 

Sabbe sattā sabbadukkhā pamuccantu.

 

Sabbe sattā mā laddha-sampattito vigachhantu.

 

Sabbe sattā kammassakā kammadāyādā kammayonī kammabandhū kammapaṭisaraṇa, yaṃ kammaṃ karissanti kalyāṇaṃ vā pāpakaṃ vā tassa dāyādā bhavissanti.

 

English :

 

May I abide in well-being, in freedom from affliction, in freedom from hostility, in freedom from ill will, in freedom from anxiety and may I maintain well-being in myself.

 

May everyone abide in well-being, in freedom from hostility, in freedom from ill will, in freedom from anxiety, & may they maintain well-being in themselves.

 

May all beings be released from all suffering.

 

And may they not be parted from the good fortune they have attained.

When they act upon intention, all beings are the owners of their action and inherit its results. Their future is born from such action, companion to such action and its results will be their home. All actions with intention, be they skilful or harmful, of such acts, they will be the heirs.

 

French: Réflections sur le Bonheur Universel (Have this on the French site instead of English)

 

Puissé-je demeurer dans la sérénité, libre de toute affliction, libre de toute hostilité, libre de toute négativité, libre de toute peur. Puissé-je préserver cette sérénité en moi.

 

Puissent tous les êtres demeurer dans la sérénité, libres de toute affliction,

Libres de toute négativité, libres de toute peur. Puissent-ils préserver cette sérénité en eux.

 

Que tous les êtres soient libérés de la souffrance.

 

Que le bonheur qu’ils auront pu obtenir ne leur soit pas ôté.

 

Quand les êtres agissent avec une intention, ils sont responsables de chacune de leurs actions et ils doivent en assumer les conséquences.

Leur avenir naît de cette action, il est conforme à cette action, et ils devront vivre avec ses conséquences. Toute action, bénéfique ou néfaste, commise avec une intention, aura des conséquences qu’il faudra assumer.

Let your little light shine (Gospel)

 

Let your little light shine, shine , shine,

Let your little light shine oh my lord,

There may be someone down in the valley, trying to get home, trying to get home.

It may be may and it may be you,

It may be my sister and my brother too,

But you know there’s someone down in the valley trying to get home.

We are walking in the light of god,

We are walking in the light of god.

We are walking in the light of god,

We are walking, walking, we are walking, walking,

We are walking in the light of god.
