9/4 Shantideva’s Prayer
Shantideva was a Buddhist monk, scholar and poet who lived in the 8th Century. I’ve read that Shantideva’s Prayer is a daily prayer of HHDalai Lama. I think the longing, compassion, love, kindness and aspiration expressed in this prayer are exquisitely beautiful. Post added by Kathy
