Four Great Vows; (Four Universal Vows)

The four vows held by all Bodhisattvas. These vows are called great because of the wondrous and inconceivable compassion involved in fulfilling them.

Four Great Vows
  1. Vow to take across the numberless living beings.
  2. Vow to cut off the endless afflictions.
  3. Vow to study the countless Dharma doors.
  4. Vow to realize the supreme Buddha Way.

They are as follows:

  1. Sentient beings without number we vow to enlighten;
  2. Vexations without end we vow to eradicate;
  3. Limitless approaches to Dharma we vow to master;
  4. The Supreme Awakening we vow to achieve.
