Kalpas

What excuse can there be for allowing myself to be swept up by anger or resentment when I know the path to liberation leafs across that stream and not down it? A moment’s irritation may come unbidden but how foolish would I be to nurture it like a spark in a bed of kindling? The conditions are there to create a blaze that would quickly reduce all of my merit to ashes so why would I do anything but cultivate Right Effort now that I know where the defilements lead?

May I always renounce ill-will, lust and stupidity as soon as I see it.

May I never abandon any mother being.

May I ever be born into favorable training circumstances.

May I never lost hope and work for kalpas to become of supreme benefit to all beings.
