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:

22. Whatever appears is your own mind. Your mind from the start is free from fabricated extremes. Understanding this, do not take to mind [inherent] signs of subject and object. This is the practice of Bodhisattvas.

Verses From The Dhammapada, The spoken words of the Buddha

46. He who knows that this body is like froth, and has learnt that it is as unsubstantial as a mirage, will break the flower-pointed arrow of Mara, and never see the king of death. 47. Death carries off a man who is gathering flowers and whose mind is distracted, as a flood carries off a sleeping village. 48. Death subdues a man who is gathering flowers, and whose mind is distracted, before he is satiated in his pleasures.
