May I have
unwavering faith in the truth of reality
unwavering faith in the omniscient who embody it
unwavering faith in the wise who expound it
unwavering faith in the compassionate who spread it
unwavering faith in the influence of that wisdom

May I have
wholehearted gratitude for the friends who help me
wholehearted gratitude for the teachers who inspire me
wholehearted gratitude for the Sangha who guide me
wholehearted gratitude for the Buddha who leads me
wholehearted gratitude for the Dharma that will liberate me
