Compiled in Chinese by Disciple Mi En
English version compiled by Disciple Ji Hu

 

 

1. Entrance Gate

Praise to Generals Heng and Ha  E0265

Powerful Vajra holder, the King of Yaksha
And Narayana, the King of Solidity
Pronouncing Hong to grant accomplishment
And uttering A to indicate original purity
Guarding entrance to monasteries with awesome might

2. The Hall of Heavenly Kings

Praise to Maitreya Buddha  P1450

Smiling face born of merciful heart
Outreaching to establish Dharma connections with all
And none will not be embraced and accommodated

Sustaining the Dharma out of compassion for suffering beings
Ready to render services as soon as needy occasions arise
No leisure for a stable and long sitting

All reduced to cognition is equal to all reduced to Blank Essence
Wisdom transcendence through analyzing phenomena into details
The Five Treatises remain classic texts for Buddhist studies

Salvation and conversion without limits and ending
Born into the inner court of Tusita Heaven and
Coming again to spread Dharma to the world

Praise to the Four Great Heavenly Kings  P0120

Protector of the Land constantly secures peace and harmony
Increasing Growth cultivates prosperity to be shared and enjoyed
Broad Eyes open wide to observe all things in the Dharmadhatu
Well Known provides universal alms to benefit the great cosmos

Supplication to Bodhisattva Wei-Tuo  P0010

Protector of Buddha Dharma, a great knight,
Followed by the Four Cardinal Heavenly Kings,
Worshipped in all Chinese monasteries,
Help spread holy Dharma with all your might!

Always give timely encouragement and provision.
Just as you helped Guru Yogi Chen all the way,
Please keep me in your favor to benefit all!

Bell and drum resonate as conditions gathered proper;
Wherever is not a place for cultivation of harmony?

Offering incense to fumigate the whole Dharmadhatu
All sentient beings are thus adorned with fragrant light
Single-mindedly reciting "Amitabha" leads one home
Extending guidance to all beings as conditions suitable

Supplication for Offering of Lamps  P1572

Offering of lamps illuminates the whole Dharmadhatu
Darkness of ignorant delusions at once swept away
Lamps of Bodhi Mind shine upon all sentient beings
Wisdom life of all Buddhas passes on like lamps spreading

4. The Main Shrine Hall

Praise to Sakyamuni Buddha  P1377

A crown price could have renounced the kingdom
Awakened early to illusive nature of worldly glories

In prime years departed from his beloved ones
Sought early the salvation from worldly sufferings

Through ascetic practices realized the Middle Path
Great wisdom transcended worldly dualistic approaches

Attained full enlightenment and pacified all devil harassments
Great compassion no longer sustained antagonism

Guiding beings according to their propensities and capabilities
Great mercy imbued with skillful ways of guidance

Roamed around to provide enlightened guidance till end of life
Great power rendered endless salvation to all beings

Teachings passed down from generation to generation through ages
Graceful waves spread far and wide in the ten directions

Supplication to Sakyamuni Buddha  P1378 

Attained full enlightenment and transmitted golden Dharma
Endowed with endless ways of providing suitable guidance
Your compassionate grace universally spreads to all beings
World in turmoil and people are confused and worried
Evil views and violent activities prevail in abundance
Right path of Dharma could hardly become prominent

With Bodhi aspiration to save sentient beings far and wide
Yet hindrances and difficulties arose from many directions
Practicing Dharma in this world is step-by-step hindered

Compassionate vows would leave no one behind
Grant us blessings here and there, everywhere
So that the right Dharma will propagate in prosperity

Praise to Manjusri Bodhisattva  E0080

Bodhisattva Manjusri swings the sword of Wisdom,
Sorrows of sentient beings in all directions are cut off!

Bodhisattva Manjusri enunciates the Lion's Roar,
Upon hearing it sentient beings at all times are awakened!

Bodhisattva Manjusri always remembered,
Even trapped in the mire of five pollutions one remains spotless!

Bodhisattva Manjusri is the savior,
Comprehending all phenomena as of Blank Essence, one escapes Samsara!

Praise to Samantabhadra Bodhisattva  P1621

Homage to all Buddhas, Samantabhadra′s activity
Praising Tathagata, Samantabhadra′s speech
Extensively conducting offerings, Samantabhadra′s merits
Repenting karmic hindrances, Samantabhadra′s sincerity

Rejoicing in all meritorious deeds, Samantabhadra′s generosity
Pleading for Turning the Wheel of Dharma, Samantabhadra′s intention
Pleading to Buddhas for their staying in this world, Samantabhadra′s mercy
Constantly learning from Buddha, Samantabhadra′s humbleness

Always accommodating to sentient beings, Samantabhadra′s grace
Universal dedication of merits to all beings, Samantabhadra′s virtue
Recognizing a dust as identical to the Dharmadhatu, Samantabhadra′s wisdom
Exploding away spatial and temporal limitations, Samantabhadra′s unity

Compassion of Avalokitesvara, Samantabhadra′s vows
Wisdom of Manjusri, Samantabhadra′s skills
Great might of Mahasthamaprapta, Samantabhadra′s capacity
Myriads of merits harmonized into oneness, Samantabhadra′s salvation activities

Neither right nor wrong;
No waiting for practice or attainment,
Unified only after Self disappeared.

Worshipping it with offerings in reverence yields freedom from fear.

Great mantra of secret power, pacifying and eradicating all suffering;
Repeating it devoutly and constantly brings peace and harmony.

Guarding generals twelve in number, protecting the pure and faithful ones;
Offering lamps and reciting the sutra will prolong life of wisdom.

Holy Medicine Guru Buddha emits pure lights,
Spiritual nature of sentient beings in all directions are revealed!

Holy Medicine Guru Buddha enunciates clear sounds,
Sorrows of sentient beings at all times are eradicated!

Holy Medicine Guru Buddha always remembered,
Suffering of illnesses and dangers to life will all be pacified!

Calamities extinguished, life prolonged, and Bodhi attained!

Medicine Guru Buddha, the father who leaves no details untouched!
Medicine Guru Buddha, the father who comes in person to teach!
Medicine Guru Buddha, the father who has corrected my posture!
Medicine Guru Buddha, the father who empathizes so subtly!

Supplication to Medicine Guru Buddha P1109

Twelve Great Vows, being considerate to all details, only Buddha can do so
Twelve Great Generals, safeguarding all too well, only Your Holiness can inspire
Seven Stars of Big Dipper, pacifying calamity and prolonging life, only Your Holiness can display
Seven Buddhas of Medicine Guru, expanding and unifying at will, only Buddha can master oneness

Praises to Sun and Moon Bodhisattvas P1624

Sun Ray Shinning Universally breaks blinding stubbornness
Wisdom of Sunyata diminishes grasping like sun melts snow
Sun warmth exerts the power of bringing Spring back
Salvaging beings in suffering for sins out of transmigration

Moon Ray Shinning Universally lights up the dark night
Compassionately spares beings from suffering in poisons
Cool and tranquil is His way of guiding deluded lost ones
Just as a mother holding her child by hand to lead back home

Harmonizing in oneness, light and life are both boundless.
Compassionately inducing all beings to return to Pureland,
Sentient beings currently present are exactly Amitabhas.

Praise to Red Chenrezig  P0008

Extramundane Great Compassion Ocean in union
With Secret Wisdom Dakini,
Using four arms to expand salvation activities
In pacifying, enriching, inducing or eradicating;

Endowed with five Yidams in the five chakras
Constantly turning the wheel of the Dharma,
Wisdom and Compassion fused in limitless-oneness
To rescue all beings in countless inconceivable ways;
Shining forth luminous lights of five colors
To enlighten the whole Dharmadhatu,
Sentient beings are all under the warm blessing
Of merciful protection and guidance;

The inexhaustible fountain of the compassionate minds
Of all Buddhas in the past, present and future;
All beings in peril or despair would call out
To Great Chenrezig for help and refuge!

With transformations appearing all over the Dharmadhatu,
There is no limit in space for your manifestation;
Compassion stemming from oneness in Dharmakaya,
There is no limit in time for your salvation activities;
Unifying Original Purity and Joy in Vajrayana initiations,
The ultimate Bodhicitta is planted and nourished;
Merging into the limitless non-dual state through
Displaying illumination born of original purity.

In union with Secret Wisdom Dakini,

Granted me the adornment of dragons around my limbs
Thanks to your grace I stay in this world to protect beings

Nine faces at three levels to save beings in the Three Realms,
Three facets as embodiment of wisdom, compassion and power,
Thousand arms with thousand eyes to carry out boundless salvation,
