May all sentient beings there are in the ten directions
always be healthy, and happy. May all beings come into accord
with spiritual values and may their hopes, too, be fulfilled.
May I engage in awakened conduct,
and in each migration take birth consciously.
In all successive lives, as death leads on to rebirth,
May I always embrace the spiritual life.

Going further, I will give very best effort to the paramitas,
and so will never forget bodhicitta.
May all wrong actions that create obscurations
be thoroughly purified—each and every one.
Freed from karma, kleshas, and the work of maras,
I shall act for all beings in the world,
just as a lotus is not restrained by water,
and the sun and moon move unhindered through space.
