“I shall keep my Promise.”

10268721_867404906619829_2810534546168773922_nI resolve to become a Buddha,

Equal in attainment to you, O holy king of the Dharma,

To save living beings from birth-and-death,

And to lead them all to emancipation.

 

My discipline in giving, mind-control,

Moral virtues, forbearance and effort,

And also in meditation and wisdom,

Shall be supreme and unsurpassed.

 

I vow that, when I have become a Buddha,

I shall carry out this promise everywhere;

And to all fear-ridden beings

Shall I give great peace.

—Bodhisatva Dhamakara (Buddha Amideva), Gatha from the Larger Pure Land Sutra
