Eleven Poems on the Ten Vows of the Universally Worthy Bodhisattva
Repentance for Sins,
I have committed errors
And strayed from the path to bodhi.
All my evil deeds
Bar me from the realm of dharma.
I've fallen into evil deeds, words, and thoughts,
But will cherish the lord of pure precepts.
Know the buddhas of ten directions
That today I have truly repented.
Ah, when the realm of living ends, my penance ends.
May I forever abandon evil karma.
