We will cherish neither our bodies nor our lives, but care only for the unexcelled Way.

Repeatedly we will be driven out and exiled from our monasteries and stupas.

Remembering the words of the Buddha, we will endure all harms.

We will go everywhere to share the Dharma entrusted to us by the Buddha.

We are the messengers of the World-Honored One.

Facing multitudes without fear, we will teach His Dharma well.

—Lotus Sutra, Ch. 13
