May ALL sentient beings be at ease. To emerge the wings of Bodhichitta in our action speech and mind.
With the wish to free all beings
I shall always go for refuge
to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha,
until I reach enlightenment.
Enthused by wisdom and compassion,
today in the Buddhas' 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 endure,
so may I too remain
and dispel the miseries of the world.
“Sentient beings, self and others, enemies and dear ones—all are made by thoughts. It is like seeing a rope and mistaking it for a snake. When we think that the rope is a snake, we are scared, but once we see that we are looking at a rope, our fear dissipates. We have been deluded by our thoughts. Likewise, mentally fabricating self and others, we generate attachment and aversion.” ~Dilgo Khyentse Rinpoche
