Read full description of the books:
I don't travel too far from home without this book. The man who wrote this was teacher to the woman to ran the meditation classes I attended. I think he must be a really cool guy 'cause this book is clear enough help me to get it together when I'm having a hard time w/o requiring much general effort on my part (which is good 'cause I'm usually confused enough by the time I decide I need to book).
With the intention to attain
The ultimate, supreme goal
That surpasses even the wish-granting jewel,
May I constantly cherish all living beings.
Whenever I associate myself with others,
May I view myself as the lowest of all;
And with a perfect intention,
May I cherish others as supreme.
Examining my mental continuum throughout all my actions,
As soon as a delusion develops
Whereby I or others would act inappropriately,
May I firmly face it and avert it.
Whenever I see unfortunate beings
Oppressed by evil and violent suffering,
May I cherish them as if I had found
A rare and precious treasure.
Even if someone I have helped
And of whom I had great hopes
Nevertheless harms me without any reason,
May I see him as my holy Spiritual Guide.
When others out of jealously
Harm me or insult me,
May I take defeat upon myself
And offer them the victory.
In short, may I directly and indirectly
Offer help and happiness to all my mothers,
And secretly take upon myself
All their harm and suffering.
Furthermore, through all these methods practices,
Together with a mind undefiled by stains on conceptions of the either extremes
And that sees all phenomena as illusory,
May I be released from the bondage of mistaken appearance and conception.
