Buddhist Prayer of the Day

Pledge to Dispel the Misery of the World

With the wish to free all beings
I will always go for refuge
To the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha
Until the attainment of full Enlightenment

Enthused by Compassion and Wisdom
Today in the Buddha's presence
I generate the Mind of Enlightenment
For the benefit of all sentient beings

For as long as space endures
And for as long as living beings remain,
Until then may I too abide
To dispel the misery of the world.

- Shantideva, 8th century Buddhist monk

Buddhist Quote of the Day

In one who has gone the full distance, is free from sorrow, is fully released in all respects, has abandoned all bonds: no fever is found. The mindful keep active, don’t delight in settling back. They renounce every home, every home, like swans taking off from a lake.

-Dhammapada 7, translated by Thanissaro Bhikkhu
