The Aspiration Prayer of Samantabhadra
According to the Avatamsaka Sutra (The Flower Ornament Scripture), The King of Aspiration Prayers: the Aspiration for Noble, Excellent Conduct was uttered by the Great Bodhisattva Samantabhadra to Sudhana on the verge of enlightenment. This prayer is recited by Mahayana Buddhists as a call to awaken our mind’s Buddha-nature and perfect the activities of Bodhisattvas so we can benefit all sentient beings. It is especially powerful to recite this prayer during challenging times in order to shift our focus from the troubles of the world to our infinite potential for awakening. For our next Sutra Class we will be starting to go through Samantabhadra’s prayer for pure activities. We will meet on Sunday, February 26th from 3:30-5:00 PM. This class is open to all!
