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:

9. Like dew on the tip of a blade of grass, pleasures of the three worlds
Last only a while and then vanish.
Aspire to the never-changing supreme state of liberation —
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

Verses From The Dhammapada, The spoken words of the Buddha

17. The evil-doer suffers in this world, and he suffers in the next; he suffers in both. He suffers when he thinks of the evil he has done; he suffers more when going on the evil path.

18. The virtuous man is happy in this world, and he is happy in the next; he is happy in both. He is happy when he thinks of the good he has done; he is still more happy when going on the good path.
