May all beings are granted the strength, determination, and wisdom to extinguish anger and reject violence as a way.
May all suffering ceases and may I seek, find and fully realize the love and compassion that already lives within me and allow them to inspire and permeate my every action.
May I exercise the precious gift of choice and the power to change that makes me uniquely human and is the only true path to liberation?
May I swiftly reach complete, effortless freedom so that my fearless, unhindered action be of benefit to all.
May I lead the life of a warrior?
