We enter the 2023 new year filled with hope, and wish all those in the world who have encountered suffering due to conflict, privation and poor health, a new beginning that brings prosperity, peace and joy.
We would like to share a Buddhist prayer called the Four Immeasurable, that wishes well to all;
May all sentient beings be endowed with happiness and the causes for happiness
May all sentient beings be freed from suffering and the causes of suffering
May all sentient beings never be parted from happiness that is free from suffering
May all sentient beings be endowed with equanimity, free from the extremes of pleasure or pain.
As we transition into 2023, we wish to highlight the Net Boiled Skinny Scarf whose design references the traditional Tibetan khata scarf.
The khata symbolises purity and compassion, its light color standing for the pure heart and intention of the giver. It is presented on ceremonial occasions such as births, weddings, funerals and for the greeting of guests. It is used as a farewell gesture, symbolising a safe journey.
