For the homeless

And hungry.

May their addictions subside,
May they find shelter and refuge,
May they eat and drink to their health.

Very humbling,

I was friends with a homeless man, i bought him a cup of tea every morning. He said during winter time 4 or 5 of his friends die every year.

Tonight, my prayers shall be for them.

May all have compassion for them
Without judgment or aversion
Treating them with kindness
Giving to them generously
Looking them in the eye
Wishing them well genuinely
Seeing another human being
Who wishes to be free from suffering
