Peace and its many aspects

Good stuff from the Huffingtonpost!

Here is a very nice article from the HuffPost about U.N. Peace Day.  Starting by mentioning that Peace Day is coming up (21 Sept.), the author goes on to talk about praying for peace.   What is very good is she actually includes some brief peace prayers from various faith traditions, and provides a link where you can find more:

“Hinduism: The Supreme is perfect and complete and all emanations from the Supreme, including this world and all living beings are perfect and complete…may we always strive to see one another as God sees us–as perfect and complete.

Buddhism: May all beings be peaceful, May all beings be happy, May all beings be safe, May all beings awaken to the light of their true nature, May all beings be free.

Judaism: Grant universal peace, Oh God, with happiness and blessing, grace love and mercy …you have given us a guide to a life of caring, filled with generosity and contentment, kindness and well-being…may it please you to bless all your people in every season and at all times with your peace.

Christianity: Soothing the conflicting shadows of our own soul, may we know peace; Loving our neighbors as ourselves, may we do peace; Vanquishing our hatred of difference, may we learn peace; Confronting injustice and indifference, may we teach peace; Serving God may we find peace …and live in peace together.

Islam: May God’s peace and mercy and blessings be upon you. Oh God, from you comes peace. You are peace. Spread peace through your greatness and vastness.
