A HEARTFELT THANKSGIVING PRAYER

Hello, Dear Parent Friends of the Web!


Here is a touch of my wisdom... to make a difference in the tapestry of life. 





TODAY, AND EVERY DAY, I GIVE THANKS!

Today and every day, I give thanks to the NOBLE-MINDED who live to cherish the welfare of all fellow-beings of sentience that graze our planet EARTH's beautiful habitats, surpassing distinctions and differentiations.


Today and everyday, I give thanks to all beings of precious sentience...

  • human and non-human
  • large and small
  • strong and weak
  • powerful and defenseless
  • near and far
  • seen and unseen

...whose lives are terminated or compromised, WITHOUT CHOICE, to feed the distasteful cravings of the SELF-GRATIFYING IGNORANT, blinded by lustful sense-pleasure and egoism—exacerbated by the transient exercise of worldly power—manifested as any one, or more in combination, of the following evil out-flowings of body-speech-mind:

  • passion (cravings propelled by sense appeasement)
  • aversion (to that which is not self-serving)
  • delusion (inability to see the deep interconnectedness of all things)
  • prejudice and discrimination
  • greed (to amass material wealth, power, and glory)
  • instinctual cravings/gluttony
  • self-exoneration
  • aggression and enmity
  • irresponsibility and denial
  • insensitivity
  • hypocrisy
  • amorality

Today, and everyday, I give thanks to the EVER-PRESENT UNIVERSAL SCHEME OF MORAL JUSTICE—OF EQUALITY AND RECIPROCITY—that continually and sublimely heals and balances all evil out-flowings of body-speech-mind, as aforementioned, until lessons are learned over time, and time again!

Today, and every day, I pay homage to my beloved parentsDIONICIOUS AND MILDRED GUNAWARDENAfor bestowing in me, and my siblings, the morally grounded conditioning to light up our lives with other-centered compassion and wisdom.

Today, and every day, I deeply appreciate my kaleidoscopic human heritage—of diverse configurations and mental attitudes—endowed with the potential for higher realization.

Last, but not least, I thank all facets of LOVE in the SUPREME UNIVERSAL TAPESTRY of 'RELATIVE BEING' that made my own life possible, enabling me to carry out my human purpose fully (for myself), and usefully—to all mind-body processes that are indispensably interspersed with mine.




Let me walk you along the path of peace and grace. Humanity cries out loud for help.
