Daily Buddhist Prayer

Shantideva, 8th century Buddhist monk

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...
