exemplos de orações feitas dia dos mortos nos USA em todas as tradições


 lembrar um amigo que morreu lembra-nos que nascimento e morte são ilusórios, Thich Nhat Hanh:

This body is not me,
I am not limited by this body.
I am life without boundaries.
I have never been born,
and I have never died.
Look at the ocean and the sky filled with stars,
manifestations from my wondrous true mind.
Since before time, I have been free.
Birth and death are only doors through which we pass,
sacred thresholds on our journey.
Birth and death are a game of hide-and-seek.
So laugh with me,
hold my hand,
let us say good-bye,
say good-bye, to meet again soon.
We meet today,
We will meet again tomorrow.
We will meet again at the source of every moment.
We will meet each other in all forms of life.

(Thich Nhat Hanh Plum Village and Chanting Book Parallax Press: Berkeley 2000)
