Your Holiness, Avalokiteshvara, most compassionate of all the Buddhas, originator of all living beings’ peace and happiness, great leader of peace in this world:
We, the children of the Maitreya Project Universal Education School, welcome you to Bodhgaya and Root Institute, and thank you for giving us your precious time today.
In this world filled with so much violence, wars, torture, famine, and corruption, where there are so many diseases, so many people dying of cancer and AIDS, and there is so much suffering, the purpose of Universal Education is to bring peace and happiness to all the people and animals of the world.
The objective of our school is to develop our true nature of compassion and the most precious quality of our human minds. At our school, we learn to treat everyone with tolerance and respect, to be kind to others without discrimination, and to develop the special attitude of universal responsibility.
We hope that every one of us can become the cause to bring peace and happiness into the world and to all living beings.
From the bottom of our hearts, we request your Holiness to bless us so that we can grow up in this way.
Your Holiness, we feel greatly blessed by your presence at this time. Thank you very much for making this day a most precious and memorable one.
For as long as space endures, and for as long as living beings remain, until then, may we too abide to dispel the sorrows of the world.
Your Holiness, we feel greatly blessed by your presence at this time. Thank you very much for making this day a most precious and unforgettable one.
In this world, we need so much help and guidance. Without you, this world would be a dark place. From the bottom of our hearts, we request that you have a long life. Please bless us and guide us from life to life forever.
Now we would like to sing a prayer requesting courage to relieve the suffering of others.
Thank you, your Holiness.
