Tonglen Aspiration Prayer

Having recognized the futility of my selfishness And the great benefit of loving others, may I bring all beings to joy.
May I send all my virtues and happiness to others through the strength of my practice, and may I receive the suffering, obstacles, and defilements of all motherly beings in all realms.

O venerable, compassionate Guru, bless me.

May all the sufferings, negative actions and obscurations

Of all beings, who were once my mothers,

Ripen on me now, without exception.

May I give all my happiness and virtue to others
