AN ASPIRATION OF BODHICHITTA by the Tenth Karmapa, Choying Dorje

Bodhichitta—the heart of awakening—forever the cause of happiness. 
Is praised and celebrated by all buddhas.
When the sound of its peaceful dharma resounds,

Gods, demons, nocturnal spirits,
And the hungry ghosts gathered as servants around them—
When the sound of this peaceful dharma resounds,
May they experience the heart of loving kindness. 
The animals kept by humans
And the delicate creatures who live in the wild—
When the sound of this peaceful dharma resounds, 
May they be free from all fears of predators.
When the members of the supreme sangha, the field of merit for all, 
Proclaim the sound of this peaceful dharma,
May they be free from illness and may they see profound true reality. 
Like Avalokiteshvara, may they greatly benefit sentient beings.
This was given by the Tenth Lord (Karmapa Choying Dorje) to TrungKunga Namgyal (the Fourth
