Happy Spring and Prayers for Japan


ENFIN! 
Spring has finally arrived!
And I, for one, am truly thankful. 
***********

Among the many ways one can donate help for Japan,
(after sending your donation if you're able)
consider adding your prayers.
Author Jennifer Lauck 
(Found, Blackbird, Still Waters, Show Me the Way)
has started a donation of Heart Sutra prayers through her blog.

"GATE GATE PARAGATE PARASAMGATE BODHI SVAHA"

The Dalai Lama's translation:
"Go, go, go beyond,
Go thoroughly beyond
And establish yourself in enlightenment.

Say it in its original form or in English
and add yours to the count. 
We are over 8,000 prayers and counting. 
Go to her blog below and add your prayers for the people of Japan.

I am dedicating mine to Japan,
to peace for our world in crisis
and for our beautiful, struggling planet. 

Strength
