Beautifully Expressed Traditional Vedic Prayer for YOU

"Let your soul lend its ear to every cry of pain
As a lotus bares its heart to drink the morning sun
Let not the fierce sun dry one tear of pain before
You yourself have wiped it from the sufferer’s eyes.
But let each burning human tear fall on your heart
And there remain, nor ever brush it off!
Until the pain that caused it is removed. "

May we operate from a place of tenderness whenever possible. - Rev. Sarah

I couldn't help saying Amen to such loaded and weighty words of prayers. If humans everywhere would take those words of prayers to heart, the world will certainly be a better place.

Thank you so much for sharing from your generous heart.
