This is a chant mostly chanted in Vajrayana Buddhism, however, for any Mahayana (including Vajrayana) practitioner who aspires to be a Bodhisattva, this is a wonderful chant to recite (three times) before beginning any readings, ceremonies, or practices.
With the wish to free all beings,
I shall always go for refuge
to the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha
until I reach the heart of awakening (or, until the attainment of full enlightenment).
Enthused by wisdom and compassion,
today in the Buddha’s presence
I generate the mind for Enlightenment for the benefit of all 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.
Smile and be well!
