Impossible vows – the only ones worth making…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

There is a vow that, according to tradition, Buddhist saints make… it is this:

“Sentient beings are numberless, I vow to save them all”

 

How many others, of such sublime significance, could we add?

Here are a few of mine…

 

*  The spiritual way is unending, I vow to walk it all

 

*  The truth is infinite, I vow to embrace it all

 

* The delusions of ego are endless, I vow to transcend them all

 

*  The earth’s resources are sacred, I vow to honour them all
