Prayer to the Bodhisattva

by Rabindranath Tagore

Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers
    but to be fearless in facing them.
Let me not beg for the stilling of my pain
    but for the heart to conquer it.
Let me not look for allies in life's battlefield
    but to my own strength.
Let me not crave in anxious fear to be saved
    but hope for patience to win my freedom.
Blessings to all!
