Dedication of Merit.

For Brian Brusegard, whose ashes we spread overlooking the valley in a small ceremony.

May every living being our minds as one and radiant with light,

share the fruits of peace with hearts of goodness, luminous and bright.

If people hear and see how hands and hearts can find in giving, unity,

may their minds awake to Great Compassion, Wisdom and to Joy.

May kindness find reward; may all who sorrow leave their grief and pain.

May this boundless light break the darkness of their endless night.

Because our hearts are one, this world of pain turns into Paradise.

May all become compassionate and wise.

May all become compassionate and wise.

    What a beautiful passage. Brought tears to my eyes. Our thoughts are with you and Grant at this sad time of losing his Dad. Our prayers are with you both as Grant goes through his health trials. Hope Mom soon gets her tests overwith soon too. Our love Uncle George & Auntie Bette.

      Thanks Auntie Bette and Uncle George; It s a beautiful piece isn’t it. We chant it often, both here at home and at our temple. It describes the love and support we are feeling from all over. Grateful.
