59. Mental Affirmation of New Year’s Day

Dharmakaya Buddha, Fourfold Grace, we appreciate Your endless and sacred grace that enables us to see the old year out and the new year in with a new plan.
In the New Year, may You continue to bestow Your great grace on the universe, and may the people of this country live happily with all humans of the world in sacred peace. With the development of this Order, may all human minds in the world return to morality so that they achieve the Way of the Buddha together.
May we pursue diligently this practice and work with a pure mind and a healthy body in order to achieve Buddhahood and save all living beings.
This we pray for wholeheartedly.
