Dedication of Merit



This is a traditional Buddhist prayer taught to me by my teacher Cyndi Lee and passed along to her via her guru Gelek Rinpoche. During my first three years of studying Yoga I would recite these words with the rest of my classmates after each asana class. I still recite the words daily. I hope these words reach into you as they have reached into me.

"May all beings have happiness and the causes of happiness,
May all beings be free from suffering and the causes of suffering,
May all beings never be parted from freedom's true joy,
May all beings dwell in equanimity,
free from attachment and aversion." -- Gehlek Rinpoche
