37 Practices of a Bodhisattva

Namo lokeśvarāya!

With respectful three doors I always pay homage to you, supreme guru and Guardian Avalokita who, though seeing that all phenomena neither come nor go, strive solely for wayfarers’ purpose.

The complete buddhas, source of benefit and ease, have emerged from having accomplished the true Dharma. Furthermore, since that depends on knowing what actions to take up, the practices of the buddhas’ children should be explained.

I highly recommend all my followers to carefully study and contemplate the meaning of the 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas. This text is nothing other than my substitute. This is the main heart advice I give to my students. If you manage to tune your way of acting to the 37 Practices of Bodhisattvas and never deviate from it, that will bring great benefit to you personally and to all sentient beings
