Buddhism brings me solace
Helps to slow me down
Flying high above the clouds
It brings me to the ground.

Grounded and serene
I know what I need to do
Relax and stay focused
My anxiety subdued.

Mindful meditation
Purposeful and kind
Helps to ease my burden
Helps to ease my mind.

Awareness of others
Deliberate concentration
Karma, our destiny and fate
Helps me focus on direction.

Three different Buddha teachings
Sila, Prajna and Samadhi
All are about kindness,
Wisdom and morality.

I am new to Buddha’s teachings
I am humbled and I’m grateful
For the opportunity to learn
To be joyful and ever peaceful.
