Questions.

DivinityHow do I call out to divinity?
How do I call it by name?
How do I limit the wholeness to a word?
How do I know the ocean by a wave,
the tree by the leaf,
the totality by the part?

How do I define the spectrum by the color?
How do I speak to the all?

Maxfield Parrish

Prayer of Refuge and Bodhicitta, The Four Immeasurables

Prayer of Refuge and Bodhicitta

I take refuge until I am enlightened
In the Buddhas, the Dharma and the Sangha.

Through the merit I create by practicing giving and the other perfections.

May I attain Buddhahood for the sake of all sentient beings.

JANG CHUB BAR DU DAG NI KYAB SU CHI

May all sentient beings never be separated from the happiness that knows no suffering;

May all sentient beings live in equanimity, free from attachment and aversion.
