Daily Prayer

Chenrezig

Each day we offer a different verse from The Thirty Seven Practices of Bodhisattvas, by
Ngulchu Thogme Zangpo, as a suggested practice. Here is today’s verse:

30. Since five perfections without wisdom
Cannot bring perfect enlightenment,
Along with skillful means cultivate the wisdom which does not conceive the
Three spheres [as real] —
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

Verses From The Dhammapada, The spoken words of the Buddha

66. Fools of little understanding have themselves for their greatest enemies, for they do evil deeds which must bear bitter fruits.

67. That deed is not well done of which a man must repent, and the reward of which he receives crying and with a tearful face.

68. No, that deed is well done of which a man does not repent, and the reward of which he receives gladly and cheerfully.

69. As long as the evil deed done does not bear fruit, the fool thinks it is like honey; but when it ripens, then the fool suffers grief.
