A New Year's Wish

Words from The Dalai Lama:


May the poor find wealth,

Those weak with sorrow find joy.

May the forlorn  find new hope, 

Constant happiness and prosperity.


May the frightened cease to be afraid, 

And those bound be free.

May the weak find power,

And may their hearts join in friendship.
