THE SUN AND THE MOON


Bodhgaya, Bihar, India
January 2024

Like the four great elements, the earth and so forth,
And like the sky, may I always be
A means of living in every way
For the innumerable sentient beings.
Likewise, may I be a means of living,
At all times and in all ways, for the realms of
Sentient beings equaling the extent of space,
Until they all attain the sorrowless state.
As long as space remains,
As long as transmigratory beings remain,
Until then may I too remain
To dispel the suffering of transmigratory beings.
Shantideva
