Prayer is a reaffirmation of an ideal, a psychological perfection in our outlook.
To remain in an altruistic attitude towards all, to remember our true nature of unbiased awareness, and to do no harm – rather than make things worse.
To wish that all beings find happiness, are free from suffering, and dwell in equanimity.
To aspire that the minds of all beings – including ourselves – might find inner peace.
In this way, we remain confident that we are in facing the right direction, and can find a sense of joy in life.
We are not going to be able to change the world but we can change our view of the world by understanding why it is the way it is.
We can write our own pray!
