A Bodhisattva Vow

With the wish to free all sentient beings
I take refuge at all times
in the buddha, dharma and sangha
until the attainment of full enlightenment.

Today, in the presence of the enlightened ones,
inspired by compassion, wisdom and joyous efforts,
I generate the mind aspiring for full buddhahood
for the well-being of all sentient beings.

For as long as space endures,
and for as long as sentient beings remain,
until then, may I too abide
to dispel the misery of the world.
