Buddhist Protection and Healing Blessing

Kannon Bodhisattva, inside your Mothering arms 
We seek protection from destructive forces that surround 
Protect the mind from hurtful thoughts and images 
Protect the mouth from speaking harsh and unnecessary words 
Protect the body from physical harm 
Protect our home from the energy that seeks to destroy 
Protect children and guide them to be of strong heart and mind in the face of adversity 
Protect our spirit and guide us this day 
For strength and power we find in you. 
Deep in our bones Kannon is alive, 
Deep in our cells and blood Life Force is strong, 
Deep in our heart and spirit, 
We believe healing will come. 
Abundant Life Force of the Universe flow in all of us, 
Banish this disease. 
From the blood, bones, and cells of all those afflicted 
We visualize healing now…We are healing now… 
Your Bodhisattva force is strong and healing now … 
A warm blanket of infinite compassion for the world!
