By Shantideva, revised by His Holiness the Fourteenth Dali Lama
May all beings everywhere, plagued by suffering of body and mind, obtain an ocean of happiness and joy.
By virtue of my merits,
May no living creature suffer, commit non virtue or ever fall ill. May no one be afraid or belittled, with a mind weighed down by depression.
May the blind see forms, and the deaf hear sounds. May those whose bodies are worn with toil be restored on finding repose.
May the naked find clothing, the hungry find food. May the thirsty find water and delicious drinks.
May the poor find wealth, those weak with sorrow find joy. May the forlorn find hope, constant happiness and prosperity.
May there be timely rains and bountiful harvests. May all medicines be effective and all wholesome prayers bear fruit.
May all who are sick and ill quickly be freed from their ailments. Whatever diseases there are in the world, may they never occur
May the frightened cease to be afraid and those who are bound be freed. May the powerless find power and the people think of
benefiting each other.
