Verse For Praise Of Buddha
Amitabha Buddha’s body is golden in colour,
with forms excellent and bright light without equal.
His urna can wind around Sumeru five times,
his dark blue eyes are clear [and wide] as the four great oceans.
From within his light manifests innumerable hundred of millions of Buddhas,
manifesting Bodhisattva assemblies that are also boundless.
With forty-eight vows to deliver sentient beings,
and nine grades of lotus, all enabling ascent on the other shore
[of Pure Land and eventual Buddhahood].
Namo Amituofo : Translation by Shen Shi’an
