May I be a bridge…Daily Prayer–Shantideva, India

Daily Prayer, by Shantideva, Buddhist sage 700 A.D., India
Prayer performed each morning by His Holiness the Dalai Lama
May I be a guard for those who need protection
A guide for those on the path
A boat, a raft, a bridge for those who wish to cross the flood
May I be
a lamp in the darkness
A resting place for the weary
A healing medicine for all who are sick
A vase of plenty, a tree of miracles
And for the boundless multitudes of living beings
May I bring sustenance and awakening
Enduring like the earth and sky
Until all beings are freed from sorrow
And all are awaken
