Jukai - lay ordination ceremony


All my ancient

Twisted Karma,

From beginningless greed, hate

and delusion. Born of body,

speech and mind,

I now fully avow.

 

Sentient Beings  are numberless

I vow to liberate them

Desires are inexhaustible

I vow to put an end to them

The Dharmas are boundless

I vow to master them.

The Buddha's way is unsurpassabel

I vow to become it.

 

Awaken

To the Universal Buddha !

Awaken

To the Universal Dharma !

Awaken

To the Universal Sangha !

 

I take refuge in the Buddha

I take refuge in the Dharma

I Take refuge in the Sangha

 

I take refuge in the Buddha,

Honourable above all.

I take refuge in the Dharma, honourable for its freedom from

attachment.

I take refuge in the Sangha, honourable for its harmony.

I have taken refuge in the Buddha.

I have taken refuge in the Dharma.

I have taken refuge in the Sangha.
