A prayer from Shantideva

Reposted from Mish at

“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.” 

~ A prayer from Shantideva
