May this food be dedicated to the triple jewel The precious Buddha...
I take refuge in the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha Until I attain Enlightenment…
For as long as space endures And for as long as living beings remain...
Sentient beings are numberless; we vow to liberate them. Delusions are inexhaustible; we vow to transcend them...
May all sentient beings have the courage to look within themselves and see the good and bad that exists in all of us...
May all sentient beings be healthy and happy. May His Holiness the Dalai Lama have a long life...
DIDN'T FIND WHAT YOU WERE LOOKING FOR?
