all wish to avoid suffering.
If all my mothers suffer, how can this child be happy?
I shall suffer the consequences of my unskillful acts,
if not this very day, then shortly after—
bless me to eat the bitter fruit before it ripens.
Bless me to take away their suffering.
I take into my heart all their suffering and the causes of suffering.
By the fire of aspiration and the wind of compassion,
it dissolves into emptiness.
ram yam kham
I give them all my happiness and the causes of happiness.
om ah hum
Gain and victory to others, loss and defeat to myself!
Whenever and wherever I meet my anguished mothers,
bless me to mount this aspiration on the breath.
