English Translation of Ordination Vows?

Post by JubalHenshaw » Mon Feb 12, 2018 10:42 am

Hi all,

This past weekend I became a Khmer Theravadin Monk for my father-in-law's funeral as he had no blood sons to take on the role. While I spent this time in deep meditation studying the Dhammapada and participating in the ceremonies, the prayers/vows I had to recite on Friday night and and Sunday afternoon when I was released from being a monk were in Khmer and I was a bit busy to ask for anyone for an english translation (give me the words and I can repeat them, but it doesn't exactly mean I understand them). :-)

I was wondering if anyone might have an English translation of these so I can fully understand them?
