 An Aspiration Prayer

  (Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso)

May we all give rise to the precious attitude of bodhicitta.


May we aspire to reach the precious state of perfect enlightenment

which abides neither in a confused existence of samsara, nor in a

one-sided static nirvanic peace.


May we aspire to attain the state of enlightenment, not for our own benefit,

but for the benefit of all sentient beings who are limitless in number

as the sky is vast in its extent.


In order to attain that state of enlightenment, we know we must listen to,

reflect on, and meditate on the teachings of the genuine Dharma

with all the enthusiasm we can muster in our hearts.


This is the precious attitude of bodhicitta.


May we give rise to it as we study and practice the teachings.
