I go for refuge to the supreme Buddha.
I undertake the training rule to abstain from killing beings.
Many deities and humans longing for happiness have pondered on the questions of blessings. Pray, tell me what are the highest blessings?
Those who are well trained, freed from all defilements, and with minds firm in Gotama Buddha’straining, upon attaining Nibbāna, they plunge into the Deathless, freely enjoying the liberation they have gained. In the Saṅgha is this precious jewel. By this truth may there be well-being!
As water that rains on a mountain-top flows down to the bottom, so will the merits shared from the human world reach the beings in the ghost world.
The wise person should make merit,
for that savings follow one along. That savings satisfy every desire of gods and humans,
whatever they wish for.
As a mother would risk her own life to protect her only child, even so towards all living beings, one should cultivate boundless loving-kindness.
