The Vow of the Bodhisattvas

The deluding passions are inexhaustible. I vow to extinguish them all.

The number of beings is endless. I vow to save them all.

The Truth cannot be told. I vow to explain it.

The Way which cannot be followed is unattainable. I vow to attain it.

~ Gautama Buddha (563 BC 483 BC age:80)
