So I would like to request all here to be comfortable in your chair or on your cushion.

And then just take a deep breath.

And exhale.

And then take another deep breath.


And then take another deep breath.


Then, to think, all of the seven to almost eight billion human beings that we have in this one planet as our home, we all want happiness. Just as how every day you want happiness, every single human being is waking up and they also do desire and want happiness.

Just as how you feel such happiness could enhance your life, they also feel such happiness could enhance their life as well.

So all the happiness that everyone dreams of, just like you, with the conditions that are in their mind, make a wish that all those happinesses comes to be true in their lives. May the conditions naturally be there to bring that happiness in each and everyone’s life.

Primordial. Oil on canvas. By Kongtrul Jigme Namgyel

May Buddhas and the Bodhisattvas, the great sages, make them come true.

May I be able to also help in that process.

May I have the means and power and a good heart to provide that for all.

May I be blessed with such means and power to provide happiness to all.

And then with this, just repeat in your mind the line, “May all beings find happiness and the conditions of happiness,” over and over and over.

Then, similarly, all of the seven to eight billion human beings also every morning, just as you wake up, would not want any pain in their mind, in their physical body, in their life. And each wishes, longs to be free from the pain and the conditions of the pain.

Now, all of the beings who are suffering in mind, in the physical, or in their life, any suffering, may all of them be immediately be free from suffering.

And the conditions of the suffering specially right now, those who are in the hospital, suffering with the pandemic, the fears in the mind, the physical agony, and the pandemic as a cause. May all of them heal immediately. May they be free from the physical, respiratory pain and suffocation. May they be free from fear and anxiety and anguish. May they immediately find relief and strength, restoration of health in the mind and in the body. May they reunite with their family. May the love they feel for their family and their family also for them sustain them, free them from the pandemic.

With this in mind and heart repeat the line, “May all living beings be free from suffering and the conditions of suffering,” over and over and over.
