Prayers for Renewing the Bodhisattva's Vow
Authors: Śāntideva, Drigung Dharmakīrti, Ju Mipham & others
Text arranged by Garchen Triptrül Rinpoché
In Arizona in the spring of 2001, Garchen Rinpoché found the perfect writing conditions--the last page of a legal pad with a nice cardboard back--and wrote down an arrangement of prayers for receiving the bodhisattva's vow. He requested this English translation, which was completed the same month.
For practitioners who have already received the vow, these prayers may be used as a means of daily renewing one's commitment. The 3rd edition of the translation has been written in versified form for ease of recitation and memorization. It is available here.
