MY WORLD IS PEACEFUL
People think that this world is in a great fire,
the end of the kalpa is coming.
In truth, my world is peaceful.
It is filled with devas and humans.
The gardens, forests and pavilions are adorned with many treasures;
the jewelled trees bear many flowers and fruits;
the living beings are enjoying it all, and the gods
are beating heavenly drums, making many kinds of music
and raining down mandarava flowers on the multitude and upon myself.
-- Shakyamuni Buddha in the Lotus Sutra
