A Prayer For The Beginning, Middle and End

This is a prayer for circumstances conducive to a pure unhindered practice in future lives, The prayer moves through the various stages of the Mahayana path, from being born into the kind of family conducive to becoming a monk. to meeting with spiritual friends and masters, to maintaining unflagging enthusiasm for study and practice, to renoucning the pleasures of this life, and finally to manifesting the perfection of the bodhisattva path. As well as being a preayer of great devotion, it is somewhat autobiographical in that it maps out Tsongkhapa’s own life and practice.
