“From now on I will always embrace loving kindness, [and] unconditional caring to all those who come into my presence looking for the wealth of holy Dharma regardless of their background, their personal stories, their state of mind. I will regard this task as a way to fulfill my life’s mission, to be a Bodhisattva and to give away myself to others through the generosity of wisdom and compassion.

With my best knowledge, I will only speak the truth, I vow to only teach pure dharma, the true dharma, even though I may encounter challenges when trying to teach the holy Dharma, and want nothing from seekers. As a doctor would do, I will give only the medicine that will heal the illness of the patient. With my best knowledge, skill, and strength I will try to spin the wheel of holy Dharma, again and again, ringing the bell of holy Dharma and awakening others.”
