May I be a guide for those who are lost A beacon of Love for those seeking hope A calming bridge for those overwhelmed by the raging river May I be a set of warm arms in the darkness A healing compassionate presence for the wounded hearts A luminous love-filled lamp showing the way in the chaos Profound medicine for those sick in spirit and physically A vase of joy and plenty, a tree of miracles
And for the boundless multitudes of those in the human realms May I bring sustenance and awakening Enduring like the earth and sky and ancient stones Until all are free from illusion and sorrow And awaken to the Great Web of Sacred Seen and Unseen Ones That encircle our most Sacred Earth To find their way back to the Great Mother’s Heart And the Womb of Creation To heal into the Oneness of the New Earth. Now, exhale and be still for a brief moment.
This Prayer is an adaptation of the original “Bodhisattva Prayer for Humanity” that the Dalai Lama recites every morning as part of his morning rituals. The original prayer was written around 700 AD by Shantideva, Buddhist monk of the Mahayana tradition, who authored the “Bodhicaryavatara” or “Bodhisattva Way of Life”.
