Blessing For a Student

May you be blessed by the nine gifts of the cauldron:
May the poetry of imagination be kindled in you,
May the insight of your reflections ripen the fruits of your meditation,
May you learn from the lore of the land,
May your research empower your descendants,
through the great knowledge of your ancestors.
May the sparkle of intelligence irradiate your life,
May understanding rest in your heart,
May wisdom reside in the depths of your soul.
