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:

1. Having gained this rare ship of freedom and fortune,
Hear, think and meditate unwaveringly night and day
In order to free yourself and others from the ocean of cyclic existence —
This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

Verses From The Dhammapada, The spoken words of the Buddha

1. All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with an evil thought, pain follows him, as the wheel follows the foot of the ox that draws the carriage.

2. All that we are is the result of what we have thought: it is founded on our thoughts, it is made up of our thoughts. If a man speaks or acts with a pure thought, happiness follows him, like a shadow that never leaves him.
