The Verse of Atonement

Hands in Gassho – Recite Each Day


All harmful words thoughts and acts

ever committed by me since of old

On account of beginningless

greed, anger and ignorance

Born of my body mouth and mind

Now I atone for them all.


(I also like to add this verse, as it helps me to clarify)


“I acknowledge all my shortcomings,

I accept these shortcomings fully,

I open the hand of kindness, and let them go”
