Buddhist Life vows

I think these vows are so beautiful and such a great way to commit

I had to share.

I,____ take you, ___, to be my friend, my partner, and my only love.

I will cherish our friendship and our love.
I will honor you and respect you.
I will love you eternally,
I will laugh and cry with you.
I will trust you with my heart.
will stand by your side through the best of times and the worst of times. Through the calm and through the storms.

Whatever may come, I will give you my hand to hold

As I have given you my hand to hold, so I also give you my life to keep.


Absolutely beautiful :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: My partner and I did a little bonding ceremony and we had something somewhat similar to this- with a focus on pure love and loyalty :heart:

I think this one you’ve shared is really well-written, @susan8. It would be a great addition to any bonding ceremony or handfasting ritual. Thank you for sharing it!


@susan8 Wow absolutely beautiful i love these vows and thank you for sharing them with all of us :heart:


@susan8 and @JasperP Buddhism is the first and foundational path that I took when moving from tradional Christianity on to a spiritual seekers life. I found Budd hism to be a soft landing and these vows represent the inherent respect for each soul that I appreciate. Thank you for sharing these beautiful vows today.
Blessed be.


Beautiful. Thank you for sharing!
