7. The Verse of Repentance

ch’amhŏi-mun)>
All the unwholesome transgressions I have committed in the past
Are all caused by greed, anger, and delusion.
And they are created through my body, speech, and mind.
I now repent all of them.
No transgressions exist in one's original nature but they arise from one's mind.
Once the mind is extinguished, transgressions will also vanish.
When transgressions and mind are both void,
This is called true repentance.
