2022 New Year’s Greeting from Venerable Dayi Shi
The past year has been an unprecedented one
while we navigate through the pandemic.
These disruptions to our daily lives have brought for the anxiety and unease to many.
adversity will strengthen us in our life journey.
By converting our experiences during hardship into positive energy,
this can shed light into our future pathway.
Instead of striving for the capacity to change the world,
let us start with taming our attitude to face the ups and downs in life.
With a macro perspective, we can broaden our vision.
By minimizing our cravings, we can learn to let go of grasps.
Perceive all phenomena with wisdom,
a seemingly congested world can become infinitely open,
while every single step of our life journey can be illuminated with sunshine.
Wish everyone a healthy and happy NewYear,
filled with auspiciousness from dawn to dust!
