The Dharma is Deep and Lovely.

The Dharma is deep and lovely.
We now have a chance to see it,
study it, and practice it.
We vow to realize its true meaning.

Brothers and Sisters, it is time to recite the Five Mindfulness
Trainings. The Mindfulness Trainings are the basis of a happy
life. They have the capacity to protect life and make it
beautiful and worth living. They are also the door that opens
to enlightenment and liberation. Please listen to each training
and answer yes, silently every time you see that you have
made the effort to study, practice, and observe it.

Reciting the Mindfulness Trainings,
practicing the way of awareness
gives rise to benefits without limits.
I vow to share the fruits with all beings.
I vow to offer tribute to parents, teachers,
friends, and numerous beings who give
guidance and support along the path.
