I would like to share the "Vow of True Enlightenment" with some of the browsers on this thread.
The Magnificant Vow of True Enlightenment
Oh Buddha, may I always stay on the path of the Great Vehicle,
And never be led by teachers of lesser vehicles;
May I always come upon Bodhisattva Sangha,
And cultivate the Ultimate Truth of the Mahayana;
May I soon reach the Path of Vision by realizing True Suchness,
And thereafter see the Buddha-nature by passing through the further gateway,
I shall follow my Venerable Teacher to penetrate the core tenet,
And directly perceive selflessness of the person in accord with the Three Vehicle.
Oh Buddha, may I develop wondrous wisdom to fearlessly destroy wrong views,
And safeguard disciples bringing them onto the right path,
So that they can all enter the supreme truth of the Great Vehicle,
And learn the ultimate and wondrous principle;
I will follow my Venerable Teacher to cultivate the seed-prajna,
And become proficient in the selflessness of phenomena of the First-Ground,
I will stamp out unwholesome habitual tendencies and give rise to the noble nature,
And courageously take the ten inexhaustible great vows.
Oh Buddha, upon your wondrous wisdom I must rely,
To diligently practice the ten paramitas undertaken by all bodhisattvas,
May I proceed to attain Receptivity to the Non-Arising of Dharmas,
And progress to higher grounds of the bodhisattva’s path without impediments,
Until the ultimate fruition of Buddhahood is achieved,
Without ever forsaking sentient beings.
Oh Buddha, shower me with your boundless compassion,
And bless me so that I can accomplish these noble aspirations!
Namo Buddha Shakyamuni
Namo Buddhas of the ten directions
Namo Preeminent Sangha of the Great Vehicle
Namo Supreme Ultimate Truth
