Glorious "Teacher's Prayer" !

From Daisaku Ikeda:

Nobel laureate Gabriela Mistral (1889-1957) of Chile, was well respected as a humanistic educator. Indicative of the great spirit of compassion and caring with which she interacted with her students is her 

"Teacher's Prayer": 

"Let me be more mother 

than the mother herself 

in my love and defense of the child 

who is not flesh of my flesh. 

Help me to make one of my children 

my most perfect poem 

and leave within him or her 

my most melodious melody 

from that day when my own lips no longer sing." 

With this same spirit, 

let us care for and nurture young people.
