Renunciate Vow of Brahmacharya
I understand, and fully accept, that the true purpose of life for all human beings is to seek God.
In pursuit of that goal, I offer my own life unreservedly to seeking my Divine Source.
I will retain no ego-gratifying goal in my life, but will strive always, and above all, to please God.
I will look upon life as God’s dream-drama, and also dream-entertainment. I will accept as His gift whatever comes to me in life.
I renounce attachment to things, people, places, and all self-definitions — except one: I will define myself always as a child of God, and will obey whatever guidance He gives me.
I offer to Thee, Lord, my life, my desires, my attachments, and the fruit of all my labors.
Bless me, and strengthen me, that I become ever more perfect in this, my holy vow.
