Continuous stream of virtue ~ Buddha Shakyamuni

From this time until the essence of enlightenment is reached, may the virtues of my body, speech, and mind continue as unceasingly as a stream. In whatever life I might be born, may I possess magnificent happiness and joy, and attain the ability and power to work for the benefit of all sentient beings. That Dharma which is understood only by the tathāgatas, that suchness which without doubt causes unsurpassable enlightenment — may I fully understand it without mistake, meditate upon it, teach it to others without mistake, and guide them.
