Four Great Vows:
Sentient Beings are numberless, we vow to save them all
Delusions are endless, we vow to extinguish them all
The teachings are infinite, we vow to learn them all
The Buddha Way in inconceivable, we vow to attain it

Sharing of Merit:
May whatever excellent qualities
we have gained from this practice
be extended for the benefit of all beings
(from "Awakening of Faith" by Asvaghosa)
