Verses of Refuge and Bodhichitta by the Great Kashmiri Pandita Shakya Shri Bhadra
Motivated by the wish to free all beings,
Continually, I shall take refuge
In the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha,
Until the essence of enlightenment is reached.
With wisdom and with heartfelt love,
Diligently, for the sake of sentient beings,
I shall place myself before the buddhas,
And generate the perfect mind of bodhichitta.
