Today, the 13th day of the 7th lunar month
is Great Power Arrived Bodhisattva’s sacred birthday.
Homage to Great Power Arrived Bodhisattva.
I, [when on the] fundamental causal ground,
with [my] mind [being] mindful [of Amitā(bha)] Buddha,
entered [the] Patience [of] Non-Birth.
Now in this world,
[I] gather those mindful [of the] Buddha,
[for] return to [his] Pure Land.
[Śākyamuni] Buddha asked [about] perfect penetration
[for Buddhahood, and] I [have] no [other] choice,
[than to] gather [in the] six [sense] roots,
[with] pure mindfulness [of the Buddha in] continuous succession,
[to] attain Samādhi,
[as] this is [the] foremost [method].
