O Lord! Make myself such that I may have love for all beings,
Joy in the meritorious, unstinted sympathy for the distressed,
And tolerance towards the perversely inclined.
O Lord! May my soul always find fulfillment, in friendship and
love towards all beings,
In all the virtuous, in compassion toward all suffering creatures,
And in remaining neutral towards those hostile to me.
This is my prayer.
—Ancient Jain Blessing
