As you speak the lines, remember to bring in the feeling of the heart to go with the words. It can be worthwhile memorizing the lines or similar lines to enable a loving presence to be steady in the heart whenever we are in contact with others.

To Strangers

  • May I not rush to judgment on meeting you.
  • May I show friendship and presence for you.
  • May I communicate clearly and wisely in your presence.
  • May your day be rich and worthwhile.
  • May you act mindfully and consciously in all things.
  • May everybody treat you with respect.
  • May you show kindness to everybody that you meet.
  • May your day be free from fear and worry.
  • May you sleep well and peacefully tonight.
