Bodhisattva Vows

We chant the Bodhisattva Vows at the end of each group meditation session to affirm that we practice for the benefit the web of life that sustains us all.

The many beings are numberless, I vow to save them;
Greed, hatred, and ignorance rise endlessly, I vow to abandon them;
Dharma gates are countless, I vow to wake to them;
The Buddha’s way is unsurpassed, I vow to embody it fully.
