    may I escape unharmed and without the need to hurt anyone else.
    May I love, seek and attain only what is good.
    May I desire happiness for all and harbor envy for none.

    May I never wait for the rebuke of others, but always rebuke myself until I make reparation.
    May I gain no victory that harms me or my opponent.

    May I be able to soften the pain of the
    grief stricken and give them comforting words.
    May I respect myself.
    May I always maintain control of my emotions.

    May I never discuss the wicked or what they have done, but know good people and follow in their footsteps.
    [Prayer to practice the Golden Rule]”
