Aspiration to Meet Ariya Metteyya 

May I, through this meritorious deed, be born in my next life in the city of Tusita, the beautiful dwelling-place of the gods. 

May I listen to the preaching of Lord Metteyya and enjoy great glory with him for a long time. When this Great Being is born in the charming city of Ketumati as the Buddha, may I be reborn with the three noble root-conditions in a Brahman family. 

May I make offerings to that Great Sage of invaluable robes of the finest sort, alms, dwelling-places and medicines in abundance. 

May I undertake the life of a bhikkhu in the dispensation and illumine that noble (institution), being the possessor of potency, mindful and well-versed in the Tipitaka. 

May he predict (of me), “This one will be a Buddha in the future.” And may I offer gifts to the Buddhas who will come one after the other and (receive sure prediction) from them too. 

May I fare on in repeated births, give food and other things that are desired like a wish-conferring tree. 

May I fulfil all the perfections of morality, renunciation, wisdom, and so forth, and having attained the summit of the perfections, become an incomparable Buddha. 

May I preach the sweet Doctrine which brings bliss to all beings, liberating the whole world with its Devas from the bondage of repeated births. 

May I guide them to the most excellent, tranquil Nibbana.

Aspiration at the conclusion of the commentary on the Jataka (from Dbk, p. 39; verses 4-11 of the concluding 37 verses):
