“Let the ugliness of unkindness in others impel me to make myself beautiful with loving-kindness.

May the harsh speech from my companions remind me to use sweetwords alway , if stones from evil minds are cast at me, let me send in return only the missiles of goodwill.

As a jasmine vine sheds its flowers over the hands, delivering the axe blows at its roots, so, on all who act inimically towards me may I shower the blossoms of Forgiveness.

O lord of Compassion, teach me to shed tears of love for all beings.

May I behold them as my very own-different expressions of my Self.

I easily excuse my own faults ; let me therefore forgive the failings of others.

Bless me, O Father, that I not inflict on my companions unwelcome criticism. If they ask my advice in trying to correct themselves, may I offer suggestions inspired by Thee.

I will behold the person who now considers himself as my enemy to be in truth my Divine brother hiding behind a veil of misunderstanding. Let me tear aside this veil with a dagger of love so that, seeing my humble, forgiving understanding, he will no longer spurn the offering of my goodwill .”


-Sri Sri Paramahansa Yogananda (PBUH)
