Twelve Aspirations

fudaMay all beings be free from the three types of suffering.

May all beings be free from affective obscurations.

May all beings be free from cognitive obscurations.

May all beings have temporal happiness.

May all beings have permanent happiness.

May all beings have the causes of happiness.

May I rejoice in the virtue of all beings.

May I rejoice in the happiness of all beings.

May I rejoice in the interdependence of all beings.

May I avoid all extremes of view and conduct.

May I avoid elation or dejection over the eight worldly concerns.

May I include all beings in my love, compassion, and rejoicing.

About Tashi Nyima

I am a Dharma student, and aspire to be a companion on the path. I trust that these texts can offer a general approach and basic tools for practicing the Buddha's way to enlightenment. ||| Soy un estudiante del Dharma, y aspiro a ser un compañero en el sendero. Espero que estos textos ofrezcan a algunos un mapa general y herramientas básicas para la práctica del sendero a la iluminación que nos ofrece el Buda.
