Buddhist Wedding Vows

In the future, happy occasions will come as surely as the morning.
Difficult times will come as surely as the night.
When things go joyously, meditate according to the Buddhist tradition.
When things go badly, meditate.
Meditation in the manner of the Compassionate Buddha will guide your life.
To say the words ‘love and compassion’ is easy.
But to accept that love and compassion are built upon patience
and perseverance is not easy.

  • Just say love

    This is nothing more than a warning that the union is not easy...at that point you might as well just say "love one another" and be done with it

    You think confuscious believed that he himself was a holy or higher power...?

    Confusciousness developed through the study of his teachings and writings, and wasn't thought of as a separate religion during his time.
