Prayer for the New Year, 2006

Homage to the universal hope for peace, happiness and prosperity

We have the great pleasure to share with our dear visitors the complete track of the endearing Argentine ballad MP3 'Cancion del Amor en Zapatillas'Canción del Amor en Zapatillas, with lyrics by Eduardo Gudiño Kieffer and music by Eduardo Falú, with the participation of Lito Vitale.

Ginamaría at the Teatro Colón in Buenos Aires, late December, 1974

May all be filled with joy and peace

May all be filled with joy and peace.
May all beings everywhere,
The strong and the weak,
The great and the small,
The meek and the powerful,
The short and the long,
The subtle and the gross:

May all beings everywhere,
Both seen and unseen,
Dwelling far off or nearby,
Being, or waiting to become:
May all be filled with lasting joy.

Let no one deceive another,
Let no one anywhere despise another,
Let no one out of anger or resentment
Wish suffering to anyone at all.

Just as a mother with her own life
Protects her child, her only child, from hurt,
So within yourself let grow
A boundless love for all creatures.

Let your love flow outward through the whole universe
To its full height, depth, and broad extent,
Then, as you stand or walk,
Sit or lie down,
As long as you are awake,
Strive for this with a one pointed mind:
Your life will bring heaven to earth.
