Blessing and Fortunate Saying to the Project UNITHEUM


We are obliged to take care for and to protect this world,
the place that we humans call our home.
Thus why should we destroy any source of prosperity
of our world without any reason?

May the truth of all Buddhas of the ten directions help
to end off all such confused actions.
May the attitude of Love and Compassion increase
and spread abroad over the whole world.
