First off I would just like to tell you that all of you that have posted on this website have given me so much. You are my first true Sangha that I belong to and even though I haven't met any of you I still feel interconnected with you all. May you never be born in lower realms and receive enlightenment fast. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
I think that it would be nice if we all shared our favourite Tibetan prayers or verses with each other. As for me, I don't know a lot of Tibetan prayers so it would also be good as a source to learn new prayers.
Well, I would like to share these 3 verses with you. I chant them everyday in english, since I don't know the Tibetan version.
GENERATING THE MIN FOR ENLIGHTENMENT
With a wish to free all beings
I shall always go for refuge
to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha,
until I reach full enlightenment.
Enthused by wisdom and compassion,
today in the Buddha's presence
I generate the Mind for Full Awakening
for the benefit of all sentient beings.
As long as space remains,
as long as sentient beings remain,
until then, may I too remain
and dispel the miseries of the world.
