I come to you with four gifts. The first gift is a lotus-flower. Do you understand?
My second gift is a golden net. Can you recognize it?
My third gift is a shepherds’ round-dance.
Do your feet know how to dance?
My fourth gift is a garden planted in a wilderness. Could you work there?
I come to you with four gifts.
Dare you accept them?

The fire of peace has been ignited in the world by the Buddha. It burns brightly today in the Triratna Order and movement, and inspired by Sangharakshita’s vision will burn well into the future – but how do we fan the flames so that the heat of practice transforms the world?
