Supplication to Sakyamuni Buddha

Yutang Lin

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
