Be You Living Toolkit No:4 Shantideva Prayer

Be You Living's objective is to support you with your health and wellbeing

- mind, body and soul by teaching mindfulness and meditation practices that are delivered in a creative, experiential and secular way.


The Shantideva Prayer was written by Shantideva, a Buddhist monk of the Mahayana tradition that lived around 700AD. He was a devoted practitioner who authored the Bodhisattva Way of Life. Some say His Holiness the Dalai Lama considers the text to be the SOURCE for developing altruism in your character and the "Spirit of Awakening." Importantly, it is also said that His Holiness the Dalai Lama recites this prayer every morning as part of his waking rituals.

Let's join His Holiness by reciting the Bodhisattva Prayer for Humanity.
