Chants / We Are Truly Present

With hearts established in mindfulness, we are truly present
for sitting and walking meditation, and for reciting the sutras.

May this practice center with its Four fold Sangha be supported by three Jewels and Holy Beings,
well-protected from the eight misfortunes and the three paths of suffering.

May parents, teachers, friends, and all beings within the three Realms be filled with the most divine grace,
and may it be found that in the world there is no place at war.

May the winds be favorable, the rains seasonable, and the people’s hearts at peace. May the practice of the noble community, diligent and steady, ascend the Ten Bodhisattva Stages with ease and energy. May the Sangha body live peacefully, fresh and full of joy, a refuge for all, offering happiness and insight. [bell]

The wisdom of the Awakened Mind shines out like the full moon. [bell]
The body of the Awakened One is pure and clear as crystal. [bell]

In the world, the Awakened One relieves bitterness and suffering. [bell]
In every place, the Awakened Mind reveals love and compassion.
