I would also like to say thanks to all of my spiritual friends here at SC for all your love and support in 2021.
And to the Monks and Nuns of the Sangha who have dedicated their entire lives to the Buddha’s Teaching i am sending my deep and heartfelt gratitude.

“Not to fraternize with fools,
but to fraternize with the wise,
and honoring those worthy of honor:
this is the highest blessing.”

Finally, here are two more Buddhamas carols.

We Wish You Liberation

We wish you the Light of Buddha,
We wish you the Way of Dhamma,
We wish you the Bond of Sangha,
Now and all the year through.

Glad tidings we bring:
To you and all beings,
We wish you liberation,
In the coming new year!

We all seek loving kindness,
We all seek peace of mind,
We all seek the end of dukkha,
So we walk this Noble Path.

Glad tidings we bring:
To you and all beings,
We wish you liberation,
In the coming new year!

We wish you loving kindness,
We wish you peace of mind,
We wish you the end of dukkha
May all beings be free!

Glad tidings we bring:
To you and all beings,
We wish you liberation,
In the coming new year!

Joy To The World

Joy to the world, the Path is clear!
Let us our minds employ:
Investigate the Dhamma, with energy and joy,
To know serenity, to know stability,
In mindful, in mindful equanimity.

Joy to the world, the Path is clear!
Let us our minds employ:
Investigate our dukkha, with energy and joy,
To end our clinging ways, to end our craving ways,
In mindful, in mindful equanimity.

Joy to the world, the Path is clear!
Let us our minds employ:
Investigate anicca, with energy and joy,
To put an end to greed, to put an end to hate,
In mindful, in mindful equanimity.

Joy to the world, the Path is clear!
Let us our minds employ:
Investigate anatta, with energy and joy,
To let go ‘me’ and ‘mine’, to feel bliss so refined,
In mindful, in mindful equanimity.
