The VOWS of One Who is Anointed

Though the many beings are numberless,
I vow to save them.

Though greed, hatred, and ignorance rise endlessly,
I vow to cut them off.

Though the Spirit* is vast and fathomless,
I vow to understand it.

Though GOD/YHWH's** Way is beyond attainment,
I vow to embody it fully.

Originally: "ZEN VOWS of Buddhism"
Rewritten by Jesus of Zion
for understanding by those of Christian Faith

Originally written as:
* Dharma
** Buddha’s
