Prayer To Generate Bodhichitta*

With the wish to free all beings

I shall alwyas go for refuge

To the Buddha, the Dhamma and the Sangha

Until I reach full enlightenment

Inspired by wisdom and compassion

Today, in Buddha’s presence

I generate the mind of full awakening

For the sake of all beings

As long as space remains

As long as sentient beings remain

Until then, may I too remain

To dispel the miseries of the world

“….It would be beneficial for yo to recite and think about the meaning of these three verses on a daily basis…” His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama 

*Boddhicitta in a rough translation means the mind of a Buddha. In this context it mainly refers to perfecting the qualities of compassion and equanimity.
