All my ancient twisted karma,
From beginningless greed, hate and delusion.
Born through body, speech and mind,
I now fully avow.
I take refuge in buddha
Before all beings, immersing body and mind
Deeply in the way, awakening true mind
I take refuge in dharma
Before all beings, entering deeply
The merciful ocean of buddha’s way
I take refuge in sangha
Before all beings, bringing harmony
To everyone, free from hindrance
