The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Bodhisattva Prayer

May I be a guard for those who need protection.
A guide for those on the path.
A boat, a raft, a bridge for
those who wish to cross the flood.

May I be a lamp in the darkness.
A resting place for the weary.
A healing medicine for all who are sick.
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles.

And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
May I bring sustenance and awakening
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awakened.

~ Shantideva’s Bodhisattva Prayer
Performed each morning by HH the Dalai Lama ~
