“Nowadays, we can see in the world so many problems, people experiencing so many difficulties. Storms, famines, floods, incurable diseases, wars, earthquakes, etc. People are asking me, what should we Buddhists do to help these problems? I replied our job is to pray.
We pray for these obstacles to be pacified. We pray for people to pacify their negativity, wrong views, their extreme views. We pray for everybody to become friends, to have harmony, good relationships, to pacify their wrong views of selfish intention. This is our job. I believe it is the best method to help. Our prayers work for three reasons. First is our pure intention. Second, the power of the prayers themselves. Third, the powerful blessings of the holy beings.”
