Opening a Path to the Ocean of Awakening Mind

Noble and peerless Infinite Compassion [1],
And all awakened and awakening beings,
May the truth in the fullness of your intentions
Move all beings, in their infinities,
To the finest in awakening mind.

Those taken over by anger and hate
Are caught in the hell realms of fire and ice.
From all these beings, in their infinities,
I take into me their pain and propensities.
I give them the kindness and love in my heart
And good works totally free of anger.
With lives emptied of anger and hell may they know
A timeless awareness as clear as a mirror,
The vajra potential of Infinite Compassion.

Those taken over by greed and want
Are caught in the ghost realms of hunger and thirst.
From all these beings, in their infinities,
I take into me their pain and propensities.
I give them a mind that knows restraint
And good works not in any way mercenary.
With lives emptied of greed and ghosts may they know
A timeless awareness that knows this from that,
The lotus potential of Infinite Compassion

Those taken over by instinctual functioning
Are caught in the animal realms of reaction and habit.
From all these beings, in their infinities,
I take into me their pain and propensities.
I give them my intelligence, both innate and acquired,
A mind free of instinct and good works, too.
With lives emptied of animals and routines may they know
A timeless awareness that embraces all experience,
The buddha potential of Infinite Compassion.

Those whom jealousy turns inside out
Quarrel and fight in the titan realm.
From all these beings, in their infinities,
I take into me their pain and propensities.
I give them patience in thought, word and deed
And good works free from any grudge.
With lives emptied of titans and strife may they know
A timeless awareness that sees just what to do.
The karma potential of Infinite Compassion,

Those whom arrogance weighs down,
The gods, they struggle with loss and shame.
From all these beings, in their infinities,
I take into me their pain and propensities.
I give them all my hard work and effort,
A mind that knows no pride at all
And good works free from any conceit.
With lives emptied of gods and defeat may they know
A timeless awareness that encompasses balance,
The jewel potential of Infinite Compassion.

Driven by patterns and blindness with no beginning,
Humans follow the rounds of birth, old age, illness and death.
From all these beings, in their infinities,
I take into me their pain and propensities.
I give to them all the virtue I’ve done
In thought, word and deed from beginningless time.
With lives emptied of toil, sweat and tears may they know
A timeless awareness that is just there on its own,
The untainted presence of Infinite Compassion.
