May I be no man's enemy,
and may I be the friend of that which is eternal and abides.
I never quarrel with those nearest me;
and if I do, may I be reconciled quickly.
I never devise evil against any person.
If any devise evil against me, may I escape uninjured and
without the need of hurting them.
I love, seek and attain only that which is good.
May I wish for all humanity's happiness and envy none.
I, to the extent of my power,
give all needful help to my friends and to all who are in
I respect myself.
May I always keep tame that which rages in me.
M ay I accustom myself to be gentle,
and never be angry with people because of circumstances.
I never discuss who is wicked
and what wicked things he has done,
but know good people and follow in their footsteps.
