The Seven Vows of Sakka

As long as I live may I support my parents.

As long as I live may I respect the family elders.

As long as I live may I speak gently.

As long as I live may I not speak divisively.

As long as I live may I dwell with a mind devoid of the stain of stinginess, freely generous, open-handed, delighting in relinquishment, devoted to charity, delighting in giving and sharing.

As long as I live may I speak the truth.

As long as I live may I be free from anger, and if anger should arise in me may I dispel it quickly.
