Opening Intention of the Amrita Sangha

(which we read at each gathering)

 We come together in the Presence of the Beloved, to deepen our journey of awakening into love, compassion, and connectedness,

distilling the wisdom of the world’s spiritual traditions, yet bound by none of them,

surrendering to the One Heart, which is called by many names—God, Brahma, Allah, the Tao, the Buddha Nature, Satchitananda—which dwells in our hearts and our sangha,

dedicated to bringing amrita—the nectar of enlightenment—to all beings, to create a new earth and new human community.

And so, we say together:  May all beings be free of suffering.   May all beings encounter the joy of awakening. May all beings find the healing they took birth for.  May all beings find the love and peace that passes understanding and dwells inside our hearts.
