[chuck] in Dharma, Thanksgiving, Trinity Church, Verse of Gratitude

For all beneficent karma, ever manifested through me,
I am grateful.

May this gratitude be expressed though my body, speech and mind,
with infinite kindness to the past,
infinite service to the present,
infinite responsibility to the future.

Happy Thanksgiving.

The temple bell shown in the foreground - rung three times to start the inter-religious Thanksgiving service - is from the Empty Hand Zen Center].
