To be born human is truly rare
so let us be clear of our direction in every minute and second
and elevate the value of our lives.
To hear the Buddha Dharma is rare
so let us have a clear mission in life
and be diligent in our spiritual practice.
We must be united in harmony on the Bodhisattva Path.
Let us not give rise to resentment toward others
nor let ourselves give rise to indolence.
Let us practice what is hard to practice and do good together.
Let us share in the same vow, lifetime after lifetime.
