Bodhisattva Vow

With the wish to free all beings,

I will always go for refuge

to the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha

until the attainment of full enlightenment.

Enthused by compassion and wisdom,

Today in the Buddha's presence,

I generate the mind of enlightenment

for the benefit of all sentient beings.

For as long as space endures

and as long as living beings remain,

until then may I, too,

abide to dispel the misery of the world.


Shantideva - 8th Century
