Aspiration to be Reborn with Metteyya

May I be reborn in the city of Tusita, the beautiful

dwelling-place of the gods at a time when Lord Metteyya has taken his penultimate birth.

May I listen to the preaching of Lord Metteyya and develop the paramis under him for a long time.

When this Great Being is born in the charming city of Ketumatī as the Buddha, may I be reborn with the three noble root-conditions in a Brahman family.

May I make offerings to that Great Sage of invaluable robes of the finest sort, alms, dwelling-places and medicines in abundance.

May I undertake the life of a bhikkhu in the dispensation and illumine that noble (institution), being the possessor of potency, mindful and well-versed in the Tipiṭaka.

May he predict (of me), “This one will be a Buddha in the future.”

And may I offer gifts to the Buddhas who will come one after the other and (receive sure prediction) from

them too.

May I fare on in repeated births, give food and other things that are desired like a wish-conferring tree.

May I fulfil all the perfections of morality, renunciation, wisdom, and so forth, and having attained the summit of the perfections, become an incomparable Buddha.

May I preach the sweet Doctrine which brings bliss to all beings, liberating the whole world

with its Devas from the bondage of repeated births.

May I guide them to the most excellent, tranquil Nibbāna.
