Chant and recitation sheet for Thursday Evenings:

Offering Respect               

We offer respect to the traditional custodians of this land and to the teachings that sustain them.

We offer respect to our lineage of teachers and to the teachings that sustain us.


All the wrong ever created by me since of old

On account of my beginingless greed, ill will and ignorance

Born of my conduct, speech and thought

I now confess and repent of it all

 Four Great Vows

Living beings are numberless

I vow to free them

Delusions are inexhaustible

I vow to end them

The teachings are boundless

I vow to master them

The Awakened way is unsurpassable

I vow to embody it fully…

The vow of Humankind

Calm and composed, let us awaken to our True Self, make full use of our abilities according to our respective vocations.

Discern suffering, both individual and social and its    sources.

Recognise the right direction in which history should proceed, joining hands as kin, beyond the differences      of race, nation and class

Let us with compassion, vow to bring to realisation our deep desire for emancipation and construct a world in which all can live truly and fully.
