I would ask all who are willing, to join me in offering merit to the woman who died as a result of the gang rape on the Indian bus in Delhi.

And also to all the women in India who have been the victims of sexual assault, rape, intimidation, and murder.

I would also like to offer merit to the ignorant who are doing and perpetuating these crimes, we hope that all may see the Buddha Nature in their fellow human being and learn to refrain from violence, greed, anger, and delusion.

May all beings be at peace.

May all beings know great compassion, wisdom and joy.

May all beings be free from suffering.

In Gassho,

Sara H

"Life is full of suffering. AND Life is full of the Eternal
We can stand in our shadow, and wallow in the darkness,
We can turn around.
It is OUR choice." -Rev. Basil

" ...out of fear, even the good harm one another. " -Rev. Dazui MacPhillamy

I am in Delhi now, and I share your aspirations and rejoice in your action.

May any merit generated by on-line discussion
Be dedicated to the Ultimate Benefit of All Sentient Beings.

Well said Sara.

May all beings possess happiness and the cause of happiness;
May they be free from suffering and the causes of suffering;
May they never be separated from the suoreme happiness devoid of suffering;
May they abide in the great equanimity, with neither attachment to friends and relatives nor aggression towards enemies.
