Proclaiming “This is my vow,”(*)
let’s make a sweeping advance with
the spirit of many in body, one in mind,
together with our worldwide treasured friends,
fellow Bodhisattvas of the Earth.
Let’s courageously exert ourselves
in the “two ways of practice and study”
with our lives brimming with
profound joy and buoyant spirits!
