"Though the many beings are uncountable, I vow to save them;
Though delusions rise without end, I vow to end them;
Though Dharma Gates are limitless, I vow to study them;
Though Buddha's way is inconceivable, I vow to embody it."
But for me, I have my own four great vows. They are
"When I get hungry, I have something to eat; When the weather
is cold, I put on more clothes; When I get tired, I lie down and
take a nap; When it's warm, I look for a cool breeze."
