Jukai Chants


All my ancient wrong actions
arising from beginningless greed, anger and ignorance,
based on mind, speech and body,
I fully acknowledge.

First, to embrace and sustain right conduct.
Second, to embrace and sustain every good.
Third, to embrace and sustain all beings.

Third, no attachment to fulfillment
Fourth, no illusory words
Fifth, no selling the wine of delusion
Sixth, no dwelling on past mistakes
Seventh, no praise or blame
