Aspiration and Dedication

This is a lovely Aspiration and Dedication that we use before and after any yoga or spiritual practice…Make a habit of always making an aspiration before anything you do that is virtuous…and always dedicating the merit afterwards…

Aspiration 

May what we are about to do yield favorable results.

May it give us the capacity to benefit others.

May it help us overcome ignorance and limitation.

May it clear away all obstacles on the path.

May it lead us to the union of wisdom and

compassion.

om ah hum so’ha

Dedication

 By the merit accrued by all our virtuous acts

May all be free from suffering and the causes of suffering.

May all embrace happiness and the causes of happiness.

May all abide in peace, free from self-grasping.

May all attain the union of wisdom and compassion.

om ah hum  om ah hum   om ah hum so’ha

(om ah hum so’ha = I surrender to the body, speech and mind of the Enlightened Ones)
