For however long I have left to live,
May I be devoted to the Dharma from the very core of my being,
And may whatever I do, say or think,
Be directed only to beings’ good,
Never entangled in selfish desires!
May I set out upon the path to liberation,
And, mounting the steed of bodhicitta,
May I lead all beings to happiness!
