Our Pledge as Shin Buddhists

Our Pledge

Breaking out of my shell
I will share a warm smile and speak gentle words
Just like the kind Buddha

Not becoming lost in my greed, anger, and ignorance
I shall think and act with an open-mind
Just like the calm and peaceful Buddha

Not putting myself first
I will share in the joy and sadness of others
Just like the compassionate Buddha

Realizing the gift I have received
I shall strive to live each day to its fullest
Like the Buddha who tirelessly works to liberate all.
