Transcripts of full meetings of the council.

Thank you so much, all of you, to -- my name is Losang Samten. Originally I'm from Tibet, now living in here beautiful City of Brotherly Love over 17 years. I'm so happy to be here today, and thank you for giving me an opportunity this morning to pray a Buddhist prayer.

The prayer of this is loving, kindness, compassion. And truly I believe we all believe that so much bottom of our heart, kindness and compassion and patience.

We, the citizens of this city, depend on you, your decisions, your guidance. And so I was so privileged to have met all of you, and just day-to-day basis not that easy to carrying the message of Jesus, message of the holy people who we admire so much. But in a way, it is so important, all of us, day-to-day basis, whatever level we are, in carrying the loving and caring, compassion in a city like this, in brotherly love, and so many desperate people who are really living difficult conditions. And so I hope and pray that you will do best decision for us.

And this is ancient prayer. Even though language is Tibetan, but an ancient prayer 2,600 years ago about increase our humanity, love, compassion, and patience.
