With a wish to free all beings
I shall always go for refuge
To the Buddha ,Dharma,and Sangha,
Until I reach full Enlightenment.
Enthused by wisdom and compassion,
today in the Buddha's presence
I generate the Mind for Full Awakening
For the benefit of all sentient beings
As long as space remains,
As long as sentient beings remain
until then,may I too remain
And dispel the miseries of the world.
In mahayana lineage a bodhicitta is someone that has attained full Enlightenment and spends his life in trying to save and obtain for beings and sentient beings their enlightenment.
This is not ny lineage. if an error is made in the description of the Bodhicitta,Lisa being of Mahayana will
surely correct me..
Enjoy the beauty of this prayer
