Dalai Lama gives the Opening Prayer in the U.S. Senate

"With our thoughts we make our world..."
phpBB [video]

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 endures,
as long as sentient being remain,
until then, may I too remain
and dispel the miseries of the world.
Mind and mental events are concepts, mere postulations within the three realms of samsara Longchenpa .... A link to my Garden, Art and Foodie blog Scratch Living

There may not be another place on earth in need of such a prayer and the wisdom it contains and lets out freely, for everyone.
