Inspiration for a New Year

Dalai Lama 201x300 Inspiration for a New Year
May I be a guard for the protectorless
A guide for those who are lost
A raft to help all across the waters of life.
May I be a lamp for those in darkness
May I be food for the hungry
May I be medicine for all who are ill
And for boundless multitudes of beings
May I be their sustenance, enduring
Until all beings are liberated from suffering.
— Bodhisatva vow from Shantideva
A favorite of His Holiness the Dalai Lama
