“One single drop of this compassionate water…”

May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness;
May all be free from sorrow and the causes of sorrow;
May all never be separated from the sacred happiness which is sorrowless;
And may all live in equanimity, without too much attachment and too much aversion,
And live believing in the equality of all that lives.

~ Traditional Buddhist prayer

“The End of Suffering” is directed by visionary artist Adéla Stefanov and is embedded from YouTube.com. The voice you hear is that of the Most Venerable Thích Nhất Hạnh, the renowned Vietnamese monk, author, teacher, and peace activist. The traditional Buddhist prayer above is a version of the statements used in Metta, a practice for cultivating lovingkindness.
