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.

Sterling silver cuff inscribed with Shantideva's Prayer fits men, as well as women whose hands are a bit large for the mobius bracelet. The Wheel of the Dharma, a symbol for the teachings of the Buddha, adorns the top of the cuff, and Shantideva's Prayer is discreetly inscribed beneath. Handcrafted in the USA of fine, polished sterling silver. 6-3/4 dia., 3/8" w.

Exclusive to our catalog.

How to put on a cuff style bracelet:
Hold the cuff in your opposite hand with the opening facing out. Gently roll the bracelet over the wrist from the thumb side or inside of your wrist just above the wrist bone. Do not hook the cuff on the outside of the wrist and pull it over the top of the wrist. This may pull the cuff out of shape and in time, you could break the cuff due to metal fatigue. Cuffs may be adjusted just once and should not be bent each time you put it on.

How to adjust a cuff style bracelet:
Do not put the bracelet on your wrist and squeeze it. Squeezing the cuff puts all of the stress on the center of the bracelet and can weaken it. With the bracelet off of your wrist, encircle one hand firmly over one end of the bracelet and make your adjustment by gently bending this portion of the bracelet no more than 1/4 inch. Bend gently and adjust a little each time. Do the same on the other side. This only needs to be done one time.

  • 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.
