New Year Poem and Wishes
Under the glorious canopy of redwood trees
The New Year peacock dances
Sun and moon rise into the blue sky
The earth grows and happiness increases
In this New Year
— H.E. Khempo Yurmed Tinly Rinpoche
If we are peaceful.
If we are happy.
We can smile and blossom
Like a flower.
In our family,
Our entire society
From our peace.
— Thich Nhat Hanh
Evoking the presence of great compassion, let us fill our hearts with our own compassion – towards ourselves and towards all living beings.
Let us pray that all living beings realize that they are all brothers and sisters, all nourished from the same source of life.
— Buddhist Prayer
