In this video US based facilitator Paul Simon shares Bodhisattva, a song that he wrote himself and uses at Culture Jam camps where he facilitates every summer.

Lyrics: I am a messenger of love,
I am a servant of peace,
All I can offer is a song,
And the medicine it brings.

I am a messenger of love,
I am a servant of peace,
Give this life unto the flame,
May it burn eternally.

I am a messenger of love.
I am a servant of peace.
And I will return again,
Til all are free from suffering.

I am a messenger of love.
I am a servant of peace.
I will share this song,
Unite my human family.
Unite my human family.
