The Seventy Aspirations is a prayer composed by Ashvaghosha. Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche tells the story of this prayer:

One day Ashvaghosha was travelling through a forest, and he met a tiger. The tiger ate his limbs, but not completely, and Ashvaghosha continued to crawl along although he was losing blood and dying. Every time he saw a stone, he wrote a poem, and after seventy verses, he died. This poem is called Seventy Aspirations, and they are prayers you can recite.
