Wherever you plant your feet, may that be the line drawn against anger, hatred and violence;
Wherever you stand,
May only compassion, kindness and benevolence abide.
May your presence in the world be a bulwark against the tide of selfishness, narcissism and greed;
Wherever you are,
May there be selflessness, concern for others and generosity.
In the face of ignorance, closed-mindedness and egotism,
Show the face of wisdom, open-heartedness and humility.
May you become a light for those in need and a safe-haven for all.
If it is not you who awakens the power of compassion, selflessness and wisdom then who will it be?
It is up to you.
And if not now, then when?
