Apostles of the Buddha

jonangboudhaRevering and trusting in the Buddha,

we will wear the armor of patient endurance.

We will cherish neither our bodies nor our lives,

but care only for the unexcelled Way.

Repeatedly we will be driven out

and exiled from our monasteries and stupas.

Remembering the words of the Buddha,

we will endure all harms.

We will go everywhere to share the Dharma

entrusted to us by the Buddha.

We are the apostles of the World-Honored One.

Facing multitudes without fear, we will teach His Dharma well. 

—Jonang Lineage Daily Prayer, from the Lotus Sutra, Ch. 13
