“May I be a guard for those who need protection
A guide for those on the path
A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood
May I be a lamp in the darkness
A resting place for the weary
A healing medicine for all who are sick
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
May I bring sustenance and awakening
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awakened"

Please note my response on this post to member millicow's comment, as follows:
"Thank you, Millicow. I posted this under Thought for the Day, like I do quotes under Quote of the Day, because it is something I came across about 30 years ago that I kept a copy of. At the time, there was no attribution, so I assumed it was part of the recognized writings of those spiritual traditions. Certainly, the whole concept of a boddhisattva is something I have always admired." What is more, I did place quotation marks around the posting to show it was not my original piece. At no time in my 66 years of life have I stolen anyone's work, or plagiarized, as you put in, and certainly would not start now, on Steemit. Your link to "disputes on Discord" does not allow me access to respond there, nor has anyone from Steemit responded to my email I sent three days ago. Please respond so that I know I am not being falsely accused of such contemptible behavior and that my full use of Steemit has been restored.
