On the Ritual for Making Vows

Ven. Master Hsuan Hua


[Editorís note: On certain special occasions (this day happened to be Chinse New Year), the Master would encourage his disciples, whether they were monastics or laity, to make vows publicly. This was after the sutra lecture that evening].

Everyone should join in making vows. If you want to make vows, come forward and bow three times to the Buddhas, then make your vows. Be sure to say your name first.
