Chant and recitation sheet for Thursday Evenings:
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.
