I take refuge in the Buddha.
I pay homage and reverence to the Buddha.
I am delighted to learn the Dharma.
I vow to practice diligently with the knowledge that all my suffering is caused by my own ignorance.
I am proud to be a disciple of the Buddha.
I vow to become a bodhisattva, liberating all sentient beings from suffering.
The root of all suffering and attachments is within ourselves.
Those who don't make the effort to closely reflect upon their own lives mistakenly believe that suffering and attachments come from the outside. Our attempts to find happiness and freedom by searching various religions, attending many temples and churches, and visiting different teachers are to no avail because the path to peace of mind can never be found outside of our minds.
No matter what kinds of problems we may have, if we reflect deeply, we realize that the root of our afflictions is within us and that the mind itself is empty. With this realization, our suffering naturally disappears.
Nevertheless, we still hold onto our opinions and make distinctions of right or wrong, thereby bringing all manner of suffering upon ourselves.
Once we free ourselves from our attachments, our suffering will immediately end.
When we look outwardly, our anger, frustration, hate and resentment often seem to be caused by others.
However, upon introspection, we realize that those feelings arise in us because we are caught up in the notion, “I am right.”
When we realize that nothing is inherently right or wrong in the Dharma and let go of the thought, “I am right,” all of our suffering and karmic hindrances will disappear.
Keeping the meaning of *Chamhoe (참회, 懺悔, Repentance) and your aspiration in mind, perform each bow while reflecting upon and repenting for your past actions.

[Om Areuneukge Sabaha]
With all our hearts, we take refuge in the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara
who manifests themselves in all worlds
to save all sentient beings from suffering
and enable them to attain enlightenment
with their extraordinary powers and means.
This is our wish.
This is our wish.
Meditate for 10 minutes or more.
Close your eyes and straighten your back. Focus your mind on the tip of your nose around your nostrils. Observe the breath as you inhale and exhale.
Read today's sutra three times.
Our modern civilization is facing a serious crisis. People are losing their humanity, communities are disintegrating, and the natural environment is being destroyed. We look to the teachings of the Buddha to find solutions to these problems.
We base our perspective of the world on the Law of Interdependence.
As this exists, that exists, and if this ceases to exist that will also cease to exist. This is the state of things as they are. Since everything is interdependent, your death signifies my death, and your survival means my survival. Also, your unhappiness turns into my unhappiness, and your happiness leads to my happiness. Based on this dependent origination, we pursue the path we can travel together in happiness. Just as a variety of flowers makes a garden, the diversity of people creates harmony and balance. We wish to form a new civilization in which love overcomes jealousy and envy; harmony triumphs over confrontation and competition; and peace prevails over conflict and war.
We take the Buddha and bodhisattvas as the models for our own lives.
Following in the footsteps of the Buddha, who lived an austere life with only one set of robes and one food bowl, we assume the mindset of a practitioner by eating mindfully and living frugally and diligently, unhindered by anything in the world. Furthermore, we look to the Compassionate Bodhisattva, Avalokiteshvara, who embraces the pain of all beings, and the Great Vows Bodhisattva, Kshitigarbba, who goes to Hell to save all beings, as our role models. Finally, we vow to be Mahayana Bodhisattvas, who save all sentient beings from suffering.
We uphold the principles of non-ego, non-possession and non-obstinacy in our practice.
With the aim of creating Jungto, we vow to surrender our egos, possessions and obstinacy to become bodhisattvas who solely cater to the needs of sentient beings. By changing our mindset, we hope to become free of attachments and suffering. Furthermore, we vow to overcome the crisis impending on our civilization by creating Jungto, a world in which individuals are happy, communities are peaceful, and the natural environment is preserved.
1. We free ourselves from suffering and serve our neighbors and the world.
2. We practice, donate and volunteer online from our homes.
3. We cultivate Jungto practitioners who contribute to building Jungto.
4. We embody the “Mosaic Buddha” by engaging in Jungto group activities.
5. We offer Jungto Dharma talks in different languages in order to spread the Buddha's teachings around the world.
6. We promote happiness for all human beings by running the Happiness School programs worldwide.
7. We take actions that contribute to world peace.
8. We expand our efforts to eradicate poverty, disease, and illiteracy.
9. To preserve Earth, we practice zero-waste in our everyday lives.
10. We build a new civilization where people share and stand in solidarity with one another.
Do not wish to be free from illness.
Being free from illness makes it easy for you to be greedy. Thus, the Buddha said, “Consider illness as a medicine for the mind.”
Do not wish for a life free from hardship.
A life free from hardship only leads to arrogance and self-pampering. Thus, the Buddha said, “Embrace worry and hardship as part of life.”
Do not wish to be free from obstacles in your practice.
Without obstacles, it will be hard to advance in your practice. Thus, the Buddha said, “Attain nirvana amidst the hindrances.”
Do not hope to be free from temptation in your practice.
Without temptations, your resolve cannot become stronger. Thus, the Buddha said, “Treat temptation as a friend who helps you in your practice.”
Do not wish for an easy path.
When things work out too easily, one becomes reckless. Thus, the Buddha said, “Persevere through long periods of time to accomplish your goals.”
Do not wish to benefit from your friendships.
Seeking to benefit from your friends will damage the relationship. Thus, the Buddha said, “Preserve your friendship with pure motives.”
Do not expect others to follow your wishes.
If they do, you will become arrogant. Thus, the Buddha said, “Surround yourself with people with different opinions from yours.”
Do not expect your good deeds to be rewarded.
If you do, you will expect it to benefit you. Thus, the Buddha said, “Discard the expectation of rewards as you would throw away old shoes.”
Do not expect more than you deserve.
Undeserved profit only leads to profligacy. Thus, the Buddha said, “Accumulate wealth through modest gains.”
Do not defend your position when feeling unjustly treated.
Defending your position will only make the other person become more resentful. Hence, the Buddha said, “Regard unjust treatment as the door to entering into practice.”
The solutions to the obstacles you face will be found within them. Efforts to evade difficulties only lead to more problems. Thus, the Buddha found the path to enlightenment through the obstacles he faced. If people seeking the Truth cannot endure life’s difficulties, they cannot surmount the hurdles in their practice and attain the treasures of the Dharma. Therefore, overcoming adversity leads us toward the path to enlightenment.
I vow to build Jungto, a land where no sentient beings suffer.
I vow to end all suffering and emotional afflictions through practice.
I vow to learn all of the Buddha's teachings.
I vow to attain Buddhahood together with all sentient beings.
