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.
Dalai Lama says to recite these verses three times, and if possible contemplate on the meaning of it in mediation. The meaning of these lines are truly beyong religions.
