The Four Great Vows Of Mahayana Buddhism

By Anonymous

However innumerable all beings are,
I Vow to save them all.
However inexhaustible delusions are,
I Vow to extinguish them all.
However immeasurable Dharma teachings are,
I Vow to master them all.
However endless the Buddha’s Way,
I Vow to follow it.
