Three Refuges

I take refuge in Buddha.
May all living beings
embody the great way
resolving to awaken

I take refuge in Dharma.
May all living beings
deeply enter the sutras,
into wisdom like an ocean

I take refuge in Sangha.
May all living beings
support harmony in the community,
free from all hindrance.


Repentance Verse

All my past and harmful karma,
born from beginningless greed, hate, and delusion,
through body, speech, and mind,
I now fully avow.

Robe Verse

How great, the robe of liberation!
A formless field of merit,
Wrapping ourselves in Buddha's teaching
We free all living beings.

Sutra Opening Verse

The unsurpassed, profound, and wondrous Dharma
Is rarely met with, even in a hundred, thousand, million kalpas.
Now I can see and hear it, accept and maintain it,
May I unfold the meaning of the Tathagata's truth.

Universal Dedication

May this merit extend universally to all,
so that we together with all beings realize the buddha way.

All buddhas throughout space and time,
All honored ones, bodhisattvas, mahasattvas,
Wisdom beyond wisdom, maha-prajnaparamita.

Four Vows

Beings are numberless, I vow to free them.
Delusions are inexhaustible, I vow to end them.
Dharma gates are boundless, I vow to enter them.
The buddha way is unsurpassable, I vow to realize it.
