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”

~
