This is the first in a four talk sequence by the Padmaloka Ordination Team on the WBO ordination vows:
With loyalty to my teachers, I accept this ordination.
In harmony with friends and bretheren, I accept this ordination.
For the attainment of Enlightenment, I accept this ordination.
For the benefit of all beings, I accept this ordination.
This verse represents the spirit with which the ordination is given by the Public Preceptor and the spirit in which one receives the ordination.
These four vows can be seen as the essence of what it means to be an Order Member.
Talk given at Padmaloka Retreat Center, 2009.
