Lyrics
Buddhist invocation

Calling out to hungry hearts
Everywhere through endless time
You who wander, you who thirst
I offer you this bodhi (alternative: “contented”) mind.

Calling out to hungry spirits
Everywhere through endless time
Calling out to hungry hearts
All the lost and left behind

Gather round and share this meal
Your joy and your sorrow I make mine.
