Aspirations

“At all times, again and again, we should make vast prayers for the sake of all beings.
When falling asleep, we should think, “May all beings achieve the absolute state”;
when waking up, “May all beings obtain the body of the Buddha”;
when putting on clothes, “May all beings have modesty and a sense of shame”;
when lighting a fire, “May all beings burn the wood of disturbing emotions”;
when eating, “May all beings eat the food of concentration”;
when opening a door, “May all beings open the door to the city of liberation”;
when  going outside, “May I set out on the path to free all beings”;
when walking uphill, “May I go to free beings from the lower realms”;
when seeing happiness, “May all beings achieve the happiness of Buddhahood”
when seeing suffering, “May the suffering of all beings be pacified.”

—Khyentse Rinpoche
