Thread: Our January 2020 Treeleaf JUKAI (Undertaking the Precepts) CELEBRATION! -MAIN PAGE-

    Hello all,

    while working on something, I came across this older blog entry from our Shokai -- seemed appropriate to paste here due to the mention of vows.

    I hope Shokai does not mind?

    New Years Day 2014

    The Twelfth Gate

    Mindfulness of precepts is a gate of Dharma illumination;
    for [with it] we fulfill all vows


    Vows :
    a solemn promise, pledge, or personal commitment, an earnest declaration or resolve

    May we, together with all beings
    Be mindfull of our vows
    That we may keep steadfast on the path.

    May this offering bring peace to all beings
    May our actions contribute to the harmony of The Universe
    And, may all hearts and minds be opened to The Present

    Please don't take anything I say as anything more than just a normal person's thoughts on the topic. I'm just stumbling through life trying to be helpful, but really don't know much.

    I think I made mine easy - may be the only "Meian Kim" on Insight? Seemed easier to combine names than start over.
