赞佛偈
Verse For Praise Of Buddha

阿弥陀佛身金色
相好光明无等伦

Amitabha Buddha’s body is golden in colour,
with forms excellent and bright light without equal.

白毫宛转五须弥
绀目澄清四大海

His urna can wind around Sumeru five times,
his dark blue eyes are clear [and wide] as the four great oceans.

光中化佛无数亿
化菩萨众亦无边

From within his light manifests innumerable hundred of millions of Buddhas,
manifesting Bodhisattva assemblies that are also boundless.

四十八愿度众生
九品咸令登彼岸

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

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
