Prayer of the Bodhisattva
As long as space endures,
As long as sentient beings remain,
Until then, may I too remain
and dispel the miseries of the world.
Gold Möbius bracelet with Buddhist meditation vow. Since the 8th century, this short stanza from Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara, or the "Way of the Bodhisattva" has been a source of inspiration for Buddhists who aspire to the bodhisattva ideal. It is the favorite prayer of H.H. the Dalai Lama who recites it daily. The bodhisattva vow — to remain in the world until every living being is free from suffering — is the never-ending compassionate intention that inspires all Buddhist practice. Like the bodhisattva's vow, our Möbius shape bracelet has no beginning and no end. Bracelet is 1/4" at widest point, 8-1/4" around. Made in the USA. 14k gold. Exclusive to our catalog.
