Leave a comment

Incense Praise (Hương Tán)

Incense in the censer is now burning.
All the Dharma realm receives the flagrance.
From afar the sea vast host of Buddhas, all inhale its sweetness
In every place auspicious clouds appearing
Our sincere intention thus fulfilling
As all Buddhas now show their perfect body

Namo, Incense Clouds Canopy Bodhisattva, Mahasattva!
Nam Mô Hương Vân Cái Bồ tát Ma ha tát

Namo Amita Buddha, whose body is the treasury of the Dharma realm

And all other Buddhas like them, World Honored Ones. Kindly be mindful of me as I repent of all the offenses I have committed in this life and in former lives. Throughout births and deaths without beginning, whether I have done them myself, told other to do them, or condoned their being done, such as taking things from stupas, from a sanghan, or from the Sangha of the four directions, either taking them myself, telling other to take them, or condoning their being taken; or committing the five Avici offenses, either committing them myself, telling other to commit them, or condoning their being committed; or committing the ten evil, either committing them myself, telling other to commit them, or condoning their being committed; all such obstructing offenses, whether hidden or not, which merit my falling into the hells or among the hungry ghosts or animals or any other evil destiny, or into a lowly life, a life in the border region, or a life as a Meleccha.

I now repent of and reform all the obstructing offenses I’ve committed. Now may all the Buddhas, World Honored Ones, certify me; may they be mindful of me. Before all the Buddhas, World Honored Ones, I further speak these words: Any good roots that I have gained in this life, or in past lives, through giving, through guarding precepts, simply through giving a morsel of food to an animal, or through cultivating pure conduct, any good roots from bringing living beings to accomplishment, any good roots from cultivating Bodhi, and any good roots from attaining wisdom, all of them, accumulated and reckoned up throughout my lifespans, I transfer to Annutra-Samyak-Sambodhi. My transference is like the transferences made by all the Buddhas of the past, present, and future.

I repent of and reform every offense, compliantly rejoice in all blessings. Seek the Buddha’s merit and virtue, and vow to accomplish the unsurpassed wisdom. To all Buddhas of past and present, supreme among living beings, with seas of infinite merit and virtue, I now return my life in worship.

Throughout the worlds in the ten directions, before all lions among men in the past, in the present, and also in the future, with body, mouth, and mind entirely pure, I bow before them all, omitting none. With the awesome spiritual power of Samantabhadra’s vows, I appear at the same time before every Thus Come One, and in transformed bodies as many as motes of dust in lands, bow to Buddhas as many as motes of dust in lands. In every mote of dust are Buddhas as many as motes of dust, each dwelling amid a host of Bodhisattvas.

Throughout motes of dust in endless Dharma realms, it is the same: I deeply believe they are filled with Buddhas. With sea of each and every sound, I everywhere let fall words and phrases, wonderful and endless, which exhausts all kalpas of the future, and praise the wide, deep sea of Buddhas’ merit and virtue. Flower garlands supreme and wonderful, music, perfumes, parasols, and canopies, and other decorations rich and rare, I offer up to every Thus Come One, fine clothing, superior incense, powdered and burning incense, lamps and candles, each one heaped as high as wonderfully high mountain, I offer completely to all Tathagatas. With a vast, great, supremely liberated mind, I believe in all the Buddhas of the three periods of time. With the strength of Samantabhadra’s conduct and vows, I make offerings to all the Thus Come Ones everywhere.

For all the evil deeds I have done in the past based on beginningless greed, anger, and delusion, and creates by body, speech, and mind, I now know shame and repent them all. Of all beings in the ten directions, the learners and those past study in the two vehicles, and all the Thus Come Ones and Bodhisattvas, I rejoice in all their merit and virtues.

Before the lamps of the world of the ten directions, those who first accomplished bodhi, I now request and beseech them all to turn the foremost, wondrous Dharma wheel. If there are Buddhas who wish for Nirvana, I request with deep sincerity, that they dwell in the world for as many kalpas as there are dust motes in kshetras to bring benefit and bliss to every being. All good roots from worshiping, praising, and making offerings to Buddhas, from requesting that Buddhas dwell in the world to turn the Dharma wheel, from compliantly rejoicing, from repenting and reforming, I transfer to all living beings’ attaining the Buddha’s way.

May this supreme merit and virtue, be transferred throughout the unsurpassed true Dharma realm. To the nature and appearance of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, these two truths are fused and understood by the impress of samadhi’s sea. Of all such infinite seas of merit and virtues, I now make complete transference. May all the karmic obstruction of living beings’ body, mouth, and mind: view delusions, false accusations, self, Dharmas, and so forth…, be entirely extinguished without remainder.

In every thought may my wisdom encompass the Dharma realm and widely cross over living beings to irreversibility, till the exhaustion of the realm of empty space, and the exhaustion of living beings, of karma and afflictions. Just as these four Dharmas are vast and boundless, I now vow that my transference will be so, too.

Namo Universal Worthy, Bodhisattva of Great Conduct. (3x)
Nam mô Ðại Hạnh Phổ Hiền Bồ Tát. (3x)

Three Refuges (Tam Quy Y)

Tự quy y Phật,
Xin nguyện chúng sanh,
Thể theo đạo cả,
Phát lòng vô thượng (1 lạy)

To the Buddha I return and rely
Vowing that all living beings
Understand the great way profoundly
And bring forth the Boddhi mind
(1 bow)

Tự quy y Pháp,
Xin nguyện chúng sanh,
Thấu rõ kinh tạng,
Trí huệ như biển (1 lạy)

To the Dharma I return and rely
Vowing that all living beings
Deeply enter the sutra treasury
And have wisdom like the sea
(1 bow)

Tự quy y Tăng,
Xin nguyện chúng sanh,
Thống lý đại chúng,
Hết thảy không ngại (1 lạy)

To the Sangha I return and rely
Vowing that all living beings
Form together a great assembly
One and all in harmony
(1 bow)

Transferring Merit (Hồi Hướng)

I vow that this merit
Will adorn the Buddha’s Pure Land
Repayīng four kind of kindness above
Aiding those below in the three paths of suffering

May those who see and hear
All bring forth the Bodhi heart
And when this retribution body is done
Be born together in the Land of Ultimate Bliss.
