Taking upon myself all beings’ harmful actions ~ Gyelse Tokme Zangpo

Even though I may be destitute and despised by all,
Beset with terrible illness and plagued by evil spirits,
Still to take upon myself all beings’ ills and harmful actions,
Without ever losing heart — this is the practice of all the bodhisattvas.
