An opening incantation:
With purity of body, speech and mind I bow to the three jewels, pay homage and go for refuge.
Please bestow your blessings upon me in all of my lives.
Bless me that I may advance upon the path, obscurations be allayed and obstacles appear as transcendant wisdom.
Bless me that unreligious thought might not arise for even a single instant and that wisdom, compassion and the aspiration for enlightenment might arise.
