Praise to the Eastern Heavenly King

Yutang Lin

Granted me the rare opportunity to see you in dream state;
With one strike on a drum, your whole body became silver white.
Respectfully I made prostrations to beseech your blessings;
One mind set on propagation of the Dharma for sentient beings.


Once I was blessed to see the Eastern Heavenly King in dream state. He struck a drum, and at once his whole body and outfit turned into silver white. Then I made prostrations to him. May his blessings abide constantly so that the propagation of the Dharma may benefit sentient beings at all occasions.
