Oṁ Mani Padme Hūṁ - I know you will do this and I believe Francis will help you. It was a light in my heart to meet you at Liz's. You ask above for our thoughts and prayers - so I include here a little explanation of the prayer Om Mani Padme Hum - I think you and your walk personify this idea - "The mantra Om Mani Päme Hum is easy to say yet quite powerful, because it contains the essence of the entire teaching. When you say the first syllable Om it is blessed to help you achieve perfection in the practice of generosity, Ma helps perfect the practice of pure ethics, and Ni helps achieve perfection in the practice of tolerance and patience. Pä, the fourth syllable, helps to achieve perfection of perseverance, Me helps achieve perfection in the practice of concentration, and the final sixth syllable Hum helps achieve perfection in the practice of wisdom."So in this way recitation of the mantra helps achieve perfection in the six practices from generosity to wisdom. The path of these six perfections is the path walked by all the Buddhas of the three times. What could then be more meaningful than to say the mantra and accomplish the six perfections?" The path you walk Elizabeth is the path walked by all the Buddhas, but you know that!
