    Happy Bodhi Day

    On this, the recognition day of old Shakyamuni Buddha's
    seeing directly the morning star,
    We offer flowers, incense, candle light, and tea
    as an expression of gratitude for the old teacher.
    We have recited "Shakymuni Buddha" from The Record of Transmission of Light. We now dedicate all benefits from this to: The great teacher, Shakyamuni Buddha
    The first master in China, Bodhidharma
    The first master in Japan, Eihei Dogen
    To Mahaprajapiti and all great practitioners
    whose names have been left unsung
    To Buddha, Dharma, Sangha, triple treasures in the ten directions and all arahats and bodhisattvas.
    May the power of their liberating wisdom direct
    the wandering-in-circles world
    toward the peaceful Buddha land
    And may the power of their inspiration
    and their peaceful hearts
    lead wandering beings to enter the authentic path.
    We aspire to turn the Dharma wheel unceasingly
    and to free the world from every tragedy
    of war, epidemic, natural disaster and starvation.
    All buddhas throughout space and time,
    All honored ones, bodhisattvas, mahasattvas
    Wisdom beyond wisdom, mahaprajnaparamita.
