Song of Meditation
I take refugee to the Budha, The Enlightened One
I take refugee to the Dhamma, The Supreme Truth
I take refugee to the Sangha, The Holy Companion
As looking inward searching for who suffers
no one, not a thing found
for nothing can be regarded as ME.
All sufferings disappear as fast as ligthning
Temporary beings, come and go but the change itself.
Acala Vidyaraja, the Knowledge Guardian,
Cut away the root of ignorance with your flaming sword
and let wisdom grow.
Ksitigarbha, the Lost Soul Bodhisattva, the Guardian of Hell,
your vow is my eternal inspiration.
Avalokitesvara, the Compassionate Bodhisattva,
Let me be the smile on sad faces
be the cure for worldly pains
be a friend for the outsiders
be guiding light for the lost
for my happiness is in seeing other’s smile.
