A prayer for peace in the world and in our communities

May we really meditate on the saying: The earth is one country and mankind its citizens”- We are one – let go on the hatred and celebrate humanity’s fantastic diversity. What a beautiful world we live.Jainist Prayer for Peace 

Peace and Universal Love is the essence

of the Gospel preached by all the

Enlightened Ones.

The Lord has preached that equanimity

is the Dharma.

Forgive do I creatures all,

and let all creatures forgive me.

Unto all have I amity, and unto none enmity.

Know that violence is the root cause of

all miseries in the world.

Violence, in fact, is the knot of bondage.

“Do not injure any living being.”

This is the eternal, perennial, and unalterable

way of spiritual life.

A weapon howsoever powerful it may be,

can always be superseded by a superior one;

but no weapon can, however,

be superior to non-violence and love.
