"The Dedication: Fulfilling All Aspirations" is a recently published text that we feel encapsulates everything we need for this tumultuous 2020: honest confession, rejoicing for even that "single moment of faith," requesting those with understanding and skill to teach the Dharma, and the dedication of merit to "give relief to those who are unrelieved" so that "unsurpassed wisdom" may come to be for all sentient beings!

For our Chinese-speaking audiences, we are sharing a sūtra, similar in essence, to Toh 285: 《佛說甚深大迴向經》[http://buddhism.lib.ntu.edu.tw/BDLM/sutra/chi_pdf/sutra9/T17n0825.pdf]
