A Precious Human Life
think as you wake up,
today I am fortunate
to have woken up.
I am alive,
I have a precious human life
I am not going to waste it.
I am going to use all my energies to develop myself,
to expand my heart out out to others,
to achieve enlightenment
for the benefit of all beings.
I am going to have kind thoughts towards others.
I am not going to get angry,
or think badly of others.
I am going to benefit others
as much as I can.
The 14th Dalai Lama

IDAM GURU RATNA MANDALA KAMA NIRYA TAYAMI
The Bodhisattva of Compassion, when he meditates deeply,
saw the emptiness of all the five skandhas, and sundered
the bonds that caused him suffering.
Hear then, form is no other than emptiness, emptiness no other than form.
Form is only emptiness, emptiness only form.
Feeling, thought and choice, consciousness itself, are the same as this.
All things are the primal void, which is not born or destroyed,
nor is it stained or pure, nor does it wax or wane.
So in emptiness, no form, no feeling, thought or choice,
nor is there consciousness. No eye, ear, nose, tongue, body,
mind; no colour, sound, smell, taste, touch,
or what the mind takes hold of, nor even act of sensing.
No ignorance or end of it, nor all that comes of ignorance;
No withering, no death, no end of them. Nor is there pain,
or cause of pain; or cease in pain, or noble path to lead from pain;
not even wisdom to attain!
Attainment, too, is emptiness.
So knowing that the Bodhisattva, holding to nothing whatever,
but dwelling in Prajna wisdom, is freed of delusive hindrance,
rid of the fear bred by it, and reaches clearest Nirvana.
All Buddhas of past and present, Buddhas of future time, using this Prajna wisdom, come to full and perfect vision.
Here then the great dharani, the radiant peerless mantra,
The Prajnaparaita whose words allay all pain; Hear and believe this truth!

Obeisance to my Guru and Protector,
Manjushri, who holds at his heart a scriptural text,
symbolic of his seeing all things as they are.
Whose intelligence shines forth like the sun,
unclouded by delusions or traces of ignorance.
Who teaches in sixty ways,
with the loving compassion of a father for his only child,
all creatures caught in the prison of samsara,
confused in the darkness of their ignorance,
overwhelmed by their suffering.
You, whose dragon-thunder-like proclamation of Dharma,
arouses us from the stupor of our afflictions and frees us
from the iron chains of our karma;
who wields the sword of wisdom hewing down
suffering wherever its sprouts appear, clearing away the darkness of ignorance;
you, who have completed the stages achieving the
highest perfection of a Bodhisattva,
whose princely body is adorned with the one hundred and twelve marks of a Buddha, who has been pure from the beginning
I bow down to you O Manjushri.

Think that the person is completely purified; no negative karma at all exists in his or her mental consciousness, and their body become
