May all the merits accrued from my deeds in all three ways, may they be for only one sole purpose:
the complete cessation of dukkha.

And thus may the same noble utterance echoed be:
"Unshakeable is this deliverance of my heart.
Lived is the holy life. Done is what needs to be done.
This is my last birth. There is no more becoming."
