As long as space endures, As long as sentient beings remain, Until then, may I too remain and dispel the miseries of the world.
Since the 8th century, this short stanza from Shantideva's Bodhicaryavatara, or the"Way of the Bodhisattva" has been a source of inspiration for Buddhists who aspire to the bodhisattva ideal. It is the favorite prayer of H.H. the Dalai Lama who recites it daily. The bodhisattva vow, to remain in the world until every living being is free from suffering, is the never-ending compassionate intention that inspires all Buddhist practice. Like the bodhisattva's vow, our Möbius shape bracelet has no beginning and no end. Bracelet is-1/4" at widest point, 8-1/4" around. Made in the USA. Matte sterling silver. Exclusive to our catalog.
