Giving

Exhale...
Inhale...
Exhale...
Inhale...
 
Breath.
Automatic,
Neutral,
Continuous.
 
Basis for mounting compassion.
 
Becoming Clear and bright;
 
Inhale black smoke,
Destroy all suffering.
Exhale pure light,
Giving four gifts:
 
Love,
Material needs,
Dharma,
Fearlessness.
 
Exhale love...
Inhale compassion...
Exhale love...
Inhale compassion...
 
Cooling hot hells,
Thawing cold realms,
Feeding hungry ghosts,
Protecting animals,
Guiding humans,
Pacifying demi gods,
Immortalising gods of,
Desire realm, form and formlessness.
 
Clear the ground,
Fill the sky,
Radiate love,
Throughout the ten directions,
And three times.
 
Like the dawning sun,
Fill existence with love -
and light
 
Inhale...
Exhale...
Inhale...
Exhale...
 
hallowed breath.
