Brain Wash

Brain Wash

With a determination to achieve the highest aim,
For the benefit of all sentient beings,
Which surpasses even the wish-fulfilling gem,
May I hold them dear at all times.

Whenever I interact with someone,
May I view myself as the lowest amongst all,
And, from the very depths of my heart,
Respectfully hold others as superior.

In all my deeds may I probe into my mind,
And as soon as mental and emotional afflictions arise,
As they endanger myself and others,
May I strongly confront them and avert them.

When I see beings of unpleasant character,
Oppressed by strong negativity and suffering,
May I hold them dear-for they are rare to find,
As if I have discovered a jewel treasure!

When others, out of jealousy,
Treat me wrongly with abuse, slander, and scorn.
May I take upon myself the defeat,
And offer to others the victory.

When someone whom I have helped,
Or in whom I have placed great hopes,
Mistreats me in extremely hurtful ways,
May I regard him still as my precious teacher.

In brief, may I offer benefit and joy,
To all my mothers, both directly and indirectly.
May I quietly take upon myself,
All hurts and pains of my mothers.

May all this remain un-defiled,
By the stains of the eight mundane concerns;
And may I, recognizing all things as illusion,
Devoid of clinging, be released from bondage.

With a wish to free all beings,
I shall always go for refuge,
to the HIS Will,
until I reach full enlightenment.

Enthused by wisdom and compassion,
today in the HIS presence.
I generate the Mind for Full Awakening,
for the benefit of all sentient beings.

As long as space endures,
as long as sentient being remain.
Until then, may I too remain,
and dispel the miseries of the world.
