Buddha Heart

With the wish to free all beings

I shall always go for refuge

To the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha,

Until I reach full enlightenment.


Enthused by wisdom and compassion

Today in the Buddha’s presence

I generate the mind for full awakening

For the benefit of all sentient beings.


As long as space remains,

As long as sentient beings remain,

Until then, may I too remain

and dispel the miseries of the world.


From Practicing Wisdom: The Perfection of Shantideva's Bodhisattva Way,

by His Holiness the Dalai Lama.
