Small Verses


VERSE OF THE KESA

(recited before putting on rakusu or okesa)
Great robe of liberation
Field far beyond form and emptiness
Wearing the Tathagata's teaching
Saving all beings

Dai sai gedap-puku
Mu so fu ku den-ne
Hi bu nyorai kyo
Ko do sho shu jo

Repeat English translation.

All BUDDHAS
(chanted at the end of service and ceremonies)
All Buddhas Ten Directions Three Times
All Honored Ones, Bodhisattvas Mahasattvas
Wisdom Beyond Wisdom Maha Prajna Paramita

DHARMA TALK
(chanted before a dharma talk)
An unsurpassed penetrating and perfect Dharma
Is rarely met with, even in a hundred, thousand
Million kalpas.
Having it to see and listen to, to remember
And accept,
I vow to taste the truth of the Tathagata's words

FOUR VOWS
(chanted after a dharma talk and sometimes other occasions)
May our intention equally permeate every being.
And place with the true merit of Buddha's Way.
Beings are numberless, I vow to awaken with them.
Delusions are inexhaustible, I vow to end them.
Dharma gates are boundless, I vow to enter them.
Buddha's Way is unsurpassable, I vow to become it.
