At least I have learnt more about the controversial altar cloth. it can be viewed at:
Apparently the offending section is in Sanskrit and comes from Hindu writings (Surely Christians can learn from others) and reads:
"From the unreal, lead me to the real. From darkness lead me to the light. From death lead me to immortality."
This is a similar concept to what is found in A New Zealand Prayer Book/He Karakia Mihinare o Aotearoa (p.164).
World Peace Prayer
Lead me from death to life,
from falsehood to truth;
lead me from despair to hope,
from fear to trust;
lead me from hate to love,
from war to peace.
Let peace fill our heart,
our world, our universe.
A beautiful prayer in my opinion whatever its origins.
