Arouse your will, supreme and great,
Practice love, give joy and protection;
Let your giving be like space,
Without discrimination or limitation.
Do good things, not for your own sake
But for all the beings in the universe;
Save and make free everyone you encounter,
Help them attain the wisdom of the way.

James's comment: I received this mantra the other day in my in-box and It has made such a mark on me that I wanted to share it with you all. May it bring right vision in you as it did in myself. This is a great mantra for those of use to remember who have embarked eons ago on the bodhisattva path.
