The Wishing Prayer
“May the precious bodhicitta arise in those in whom it has not arisen.
In those in whom it has arisen may it never decline but increase more and more”
Buddhist Wishing Prayer
In Tibetan Buddhism, bodhicitta, “enlightenment-mind”, is the mind that strives toward awakening, empathy, and compassion for the benefit of all sentient beings. (Wikipedia)
I have recited this prayer numerous times on retreat over the years and it has always had a special place in my heart. We recite it at the end of every practice, for this is the soul of our practice; if we can touch in on our true nature and get to know this part of ourselves more and more, then our lives will literally transform before our eyes.
Each year when I do this retreat I write a little note of my intentions to put at the end of my text, which embodies where I am at in my life and what I am hoping to achieve over the course of the coming year. In years gone past I have asked for clarity in my personal life, my addictions, health, around the QS programme; it’s content; flavour; and direction. THIS YEAR I wrote out this wishing prayer, realising that everything is now in place for me; there is no more striving and this prayer is what my life is all about: only to extend the extraordinary peace that I experience in my practice (Bodhicitta) out into my day, sharing it with all that I meet. Life just got so simple…..
