Shakyamuni Buddha White Bonded Marble
An example of a confession given at a daily service is the following:
I respectfully bow to Shakyamuni Buddha, Amitabha Buddha, all Buddhas in the ten directions, boundless Buddha-Dharmas and the Virtuous Sangha.
I have lived many lives under heavy karmic obstacles: desire, anger, pride, illusion and ignorance. Today because of Buddha's teaching I know these as mistakes; therefore, with sincere heart I confess.
