A Prayer Vigil for Planetary Peace
The Dance of the Bodhisattvas of Peace
Dance, O bodhisattvas—dance in heaven and upon earth. Dance in the lives of both the wicked and the holy. Dance on every shore, among all peoples, in every home and habitation. Dance in the great cities, the squares and the streets thereof. Dance on the mountaintops, in the valleys. Dance in the great arenas of sport, up the stairs and in the elevators of the great buildings of East and West. Dance in every business. Dance on every bus, train, airline and in every vehicle and mode of transportation.
Dance, O bodhisattvas, with the children, with the aged, the teens, the twenty- and thirty-somethings and those in between, of all ages. Dance in the stars; dance in the sky and among the stars. Dance in the nebulae, dance in the sun. Dance within the earth, to its core, and even within the great volcanoes of fire and magma and lava. Dance under the waters—in the oceans, the lakes, the seas. Dance upon the rivers, the streams, on all ponds and waterways. Dance in the lives of devotees. Dance in their minds and in their hearts and in their souls.
O Bodhisattvas of Mercy, dance the dance of peace. Dance the dance of love. Dance the dance of awareness, the dance of compassion and joy. And in this dance, we dance with thee, O bodhisattvas of heaven and of earth. We move in stream and grace the sky with the essence of ourselves, with the colors of the wind, the movement of sound, of music, of vibration. And in this dance, we are suffused in light, in mercy, in joy and within the elements—fire, air, water, earth and ether—of the fivefold aspects of being.
We dance, we dance, we dance, we dance. We prance, we prance, we prance, we prance. Dance with the elementals, the horses, the goats. Dance with the chickens, the giraffes and even the crocodiles. Dance with the pandas. Dance with the ocelots. Dance with the white bears of the North, the grizzlies, the Kodiaks. Dance with the hyenas, the zebras, the emu. Dance among the lilies, the callas, the begonias. Dance amidst the roses, the daffodils, the petunias. Dance in all gardens. Dance on every farm. Dance on every ranch, in every yard, in every home—dance everywhere. There is space and spacelessness. Dance in the minds of the devotees of love.
O bodhisattvas, your dance is sublime, your dance is divine, your dance is of light, your dance is of love. Mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy, mercy—this is our dance, O bodhisattvas of love. This is our dance, with light from above.
Now the trails of children of the Buddhas come to dance with you, O ladies of fire. They swirl and they turn, they tumble, they jump, they leap and they slide and they wing their way to the sun. Dance, O beings of light and love. Dance, oh dance, O beings of joy.
OM, this dance, this day of light with Buddhas and bodhisattvas, numberless and bright. Dance again and again and again—dance. Yes, now and then and again. OM. O Buddhas, one thousand in all, dance, O Buddhas, with the maidens so tall. Dance, oh dance, oh dance, oh dance.
[Kuan Yin sounds the OM.]
