“To make a vow is to set an aspiration.Source: Adapted and used with the kind permission of Martine Batchelor from the book ‘Let Go: A Buddhist Guide to Breaking Free of Habits’.
It is to ground our life in certain values.
A vow states our intention and creates a current which we can flow towards and feed.
We can renew and extend our vow.
It is helpful if the vow is not too extraordinary but at the same time helps us to stretch ourselves.”
