The Primates' Prayer
How blissful it is when our hearts awaken
To the vast and mighty oceans of Universal Love.
All life is sacred and interconnected.
May we be messengers of Divine mercy and compassion
Wherever we go.
On this special day at Jungle Friends we pray for all the primates of the world:
The capuchins, spider monkeys, marmosets, tamarins, squirrel monkeys and all of the other monkeys and apes.
So many are suffering in zoos, circuses, and laboratories.
Others are being hunted and killed or captured.
A few still live in their homelands with their families
But are in danger from hunters and habitat loss.
We know they are sacred, perfect, amazing beings-
Divine expressions of Love.
May we be messengers of light & liberation. May we pray with all the power we have
For all the members of the primate nations--
For their freedom from suffering at the hands of human beings.
And may we especially pray and hold the high watch for Jungle Friends-
This sacred sanctuary where rescued monkeys have found safety and freedom.
We ask for special blessings for Kari and all the heroic people who have helped
To save these precious monkeys.
May the light and love that continually streams from their hearts and our hearts
Open the hearts of all people to the suffering of all primates everywhere.
May all find a sanctuary of their own. May all primates be safe and happy and free.
