Chanting / From the Depths of Understanding (English, Vietnamese & French)

A Dharma nectar drop on the willow branch of the Bodhisattva Avalokiteshvara is a symbol of her great compassion to cool down the suffering of all beings. You are invited to listen to a beautiful chant “From the depths of understanding” to water the seed of understanding and compassion in yourself, please also enjoy the powerful Vietnamese version, and melodious French version.

From the depths of understanding,
a flower of great eloquence blooms;
The Bodhisattva stands majestically upon the waves
of birth and death, free from all afflictions.
Her great compassion eliminates all sickness,
even that once thought of as incurable.
Her wondrous light sweeps away all
obstacles and dangers.
The willow branch, once waved
reveals countless Buddha lands.
Her lotus flower blossoms
a multitude of practice centers.
We bow to her.
We see her true presence in the here and now.
We offer her the incense of our hearts.
May the Bodhisattva of Deep Listening
embrace us all with Great Compassion.
Namo Valokiteshvaraya
