རྒྱལ་བའི་བཀའ། The Word of the Buddha

གངྒཱའི་བྱེ་མའི་གྲངས་སྙེད་ཀྱི།

སངས་རྒྱས་ཞིང་ཁམས་མི་གང་གིས།
རིན་ཆེན་དག་གིས་ཀུན་བཀང་སྟེ།
འཇིག་རྟེན་མགོན་ལ་ཕུལ་བ་བས།
གང་གིས་ཐལ་མོ་སྦྱོར་བགྱིས་ཏེ།
བྱང་ཆུབ་ཏུ་ནི་སེམས་བཏུད་ན།
མཆོད་པ་འདི་ནི་ཁྱད་པར་འཕགས།

དེ་ལ་མཐའ་ནི་མ་མཆིས་སོ།

A person might offer to the Lord of the World
As many buddhafields
As there are grains of sand in the Ganges,
All filled with precious gems,
But greater still is the offering made
By holding one’s palms together
And mentally paying homage to bodhichitta,
Because such an act is without limit.

Buddha Shakyamuni, Sutra Requested by Viradatta
