And they gathered to hear Dear Miss say:

“Shed the suffering of attachment

shed the suffering of ignorance

shed the suffering of fear

shed the suffering of envy

shed the suffering of jealousy

shed the suffering of desire

shed the suffering of vanity

shed the suffering of greed

shed the suffering of hatred

shed the suffering of anger

shed the suffering of possessiveness

shed the suffering of financial riches

now begin to live.”
