The Sevenfold Prayer
In the Three Jewels I go for refuge,
Confessing individually all sins;
Rejoicing in the virtue of beings;
Holding in mind the Enlightenment of Buddha.
In the Buddha, Dharma, and Excellent Community,
Until Enlightenment, I go for refuge.
In order to accomplish the benefit of myself and others,
I give rise to the Enlightenment thought;
Giving rise to this thought of Supreme Enlightenment, I invite all beings.
Performing the pleasing practice of the Supreme conduct of Enlightenment,
May I obtain Buddhahood for the benefit of beings.
