I vow to wake all the beings of the world.
I vow to set endless heartache to rest.
I vow to walk through every wisdom gate.
I vow to live the great Buddha way.
The ancients made their way by stars, turning toward the faraway constellations of the night sky to find their way home. The Boundless Vows, too, are a kind of starlight; beacons not to reach but to guide our own journeys through impossible tasks and impossible times.
Trusting the vows becomes the bodhisattva path, and taking them up as practice becomes an unexpected gate to the freedom tucked inside your life.
Meditation is not a task with a known goal. It’s something you can’t do wrong, a chance for the things of this world to come towards you and to meet you, for doors to open by themselves, and for us to see where the ancient paths lead.
—John Tarrant Roshi and all of us at PZI
