业障 - 至诚发愿
yè zhàng - zhì chéng fā yuàn
Repenting the Obstacle of Karma
Make Vows with Utmost Sincerity

Lost in the mundane world, we lose sight of our true nature
When the Three Minds are obscured, afflictions arise

Though Buddha-nature in every person is inherent
Foolishly, from karma of body, speech and mind, ignorance arises

Today, I sincerely and reverently vow
I will not create negative karma of body and speech

I vow to no longer resent, hate, or kill
I will save and protect living beings at all costs

I vow to uphold in every lifetime, the vegetarian precept
That I may never hear mournful cries of the slaughtered

I vow to lessen my desires, be content and never rob
I will not entertain jealousy or avarice, neither will I usurp

I vow to be generous and charitable, never being stingy and greedy
Giving when it is difficult helps me in my spiritual practice

I vow to uphold forever, the pure precepts;
I will not be seduced by the sensual, nor dwell on lust

I vow to realize that my cravings are like shackles that restrain
Willingly, I renounce the Five Cravings and free myself

I vow never to speak ill of others, neither will I slander
To speak good words gently, like lotuses emerging from the mouth

I vow not to spread rumors and engage in lies,
To treat others sincerely and be honest with myself

I vow to refrain from gossiping and sowing the seeds of suspicion
Beneficial words that bring harmony, I will often speak

I vow not to flatter nor employ use of flowery words
I will speak and act with caution, and be humble

I vow to purify the six doors of the senses and realize wisdom
My mind will not be confused by external sense objects

I vow to eliminate the evil karma I have accumulated
And ensure such karma will not arise again in future
