I Completed My Prostrations Commitment

Recently I realised that I have completed my prostrations as refuge commitment under the late Venerable Master Hsuan Hua. When he was alive, he gave this commitment to all those who took the Triple Refuge under him and I am happy that I have finally completed it. I have not heard of any other masters giving commitments to do (much like ngondros) for a Refuge ceremony. Prostrations might seem simple to seasoned practitioners, but not for me. So, having completed those, I am now full-fledged disciple of the late Ven. Master Hsuan Hua. I am so happy. And I guess he has to save me whenever I am in trouble now due to his 18 great vows.....!! In case you did not know, check out what were his 18 great vows in the City of Ten Thousand Buddhas website. I am sure the list is there somewhere. :)

The uphill task now is to complete the practices given by my Lama. O-dear, I am not sure if I ever can finish those!!
