Deep Peace

 

Deep peace of the running wave to you, 

Of water flowing, rising and falling, 

Sometimes advancing, sometimes receding… 

May the stream of your life flow unimpeded! 

Deep peace of the running wave to you! 

 

 

Deep peace of the flowing air to you, 

Which fans your face on a sultry day, 

The air which you breathe deeply, rhythmically, 

Which imparts to you, energy, consciousness, life. 

Deep peace of the flowing air to you! 

 

 

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you, who, herself unmoving, 

harbors the movements 

and facilitates the life of ten thousand creatures, 

while resting contented, stable, tranquil. 

Deep peace of the quiet earth to you! 

 

 

Deep peace of the shining stars to you, 

Which stay invisible till darkness falls, 

And disclose their pure and shining presence 

Beaming down compassion on our turning world. 

Deep peace of the shining stars to you!
