Scripture

The Buddha said “if there be countless hundreds of thousands of living beings experiencing all manner of suffering, who hear of Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva and call his name with single-minded effort, then Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva will instantly observe the sound of their cries, and they will all be liberated.” (from Lotus Sutra’s Universal Gate Chapter on Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva) 

Prayer

Oh great, compassionate Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva!
This is the moment when unity is most crucial,
Let us trust in the government to resolve the crisis,
Let us thank the medical professionals for treating the disease.
No matter how difficult the situation,
As long as there is compassion and wisdom,
When we all practice the Three Acts of Goodness:
Do good deeds, speak good words, and think good thoughts,
If we all protect the environment and have respect for all lives,
We shall be able to turn peril into safety.
(Ven. Master Hsing Yun, Founder of Fo Guang Shan)
