Prayer of Refuge and Bodhicitta, The Four Immeasurables

 

   Prayer of Refuge and Bodhicitta       

I take refuge until I am enlightened
In the Buddhas, the Dharma and the Sangha.
Through the merit I create by practicing giving
    and the other perfections
May I attain Buddhahood for the sake of all
    sentient beings.

SANG GYE CHO DANG TSOG KYI CHOG NAM LA
JANG CHUB BAR DU DAG NI KYAB SU CHI
DAG GI JIN SOG GYI PAY SO NAM GYI
DRO LA PEN CHIR SANG GYAY DRUB BAR SHOG

   The Four Immeasurable Thoughts     

May all sentient beings have happiness
     and the causes of happiness;
May all sentient beings be free from suffering
     and the causes of suffering;
May all sentient beings never be separated from
     the happiness that knows no suffering;
May all sentient beings live in equanimity,
     free from attachment and aversion.
