The Vow

Posted on

Beings are numberless…. I vow to love ’em.

That’s my personal version of the Bodhisattva vow. And that’s my dog, Lucy, in the photo, who has taken over my home altar and is making the same vow.

And that’s all I’ve got to say today.

How about you? What’s on your mind? In your heart? What are you practicing with today?

About Maia

I've been practicing and studying the Buddha way since 1994, and exploring the question "What is engaged Buddhism?" since the late 90s. As former executive director of the Buddhist Peace Fellowship and editor of its journal, Turning Wheel, I had the honor of meeting and working with many practitioners of engaged dharma, including Roshi Joan Halifax, Joanna Macy, Alan Senauke, and Robert Aitken Roshi. I write about socially engaged Buddhism on my blog, "The Jizo Chronicles," as well as on the theme of personal and collective freedom on my website, "The Liberated Life Project." Through my Five Directions Consulting, I offer support to individuals and organizations who aspire to integrate awareness into their work.

  1. 😀 How can we not love our fuzzy pals!? We’re enjoying the gentle days of Fall up here. Noticing how the leaves that have fallen leave spaces for us to see other leaves and the stark, white bark of the birches. The Kid of off to London UK this Friday and we get to be grandaniparents to her kittie. Life is good!
