May you be reborn with a holy body
and be with Sentient beings.
May you spur us to be reborn with more faith
and teach us to open the eye of wisdom.
May you make our inside and outside light
and make our mind and body comfortable
by lighting a lantern for the corrupt bustling world.
May you help us to clear the universe of turbidness
and show us the way to become the Buddha
by showing us the standstill shape of time and space.
Though it is said that the Buddha is revealing himself in our
coming and going,
foolish Sentient beings, not understanding even the saying,
are waiting for your helping hand.
May you not leave us to give up the way to the Buddha
but let us join you with our slightest power
in worshiping the Buddha forever.
