Meditation in the Rain

"Prayer of the Bodhisattva:


As long as space endures,

As long as sentient beings remain,

Until then, may I too remain

And dispel the miseries of the world.


Since the 8th century, this . . . stanza from Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara, or the"Way of the Bodhisattva" has been a source of inspiration for [those] who aspire to the bodhisattva ideal. It is the favorite prayer of the Dalai Lama . . . The bodhisattva vow, to remain in the world until every living being is free from suffering, is the never-ending compassionate intention that inspires . . . Buddhist practice." See also wikipedia
