CHANTS

Chants that we do on Tuesday evenings.

GATHA OF REPENTANCE
ALL EVIL KARMA EVER CREATED BY ME OF OLD,
ON ACCOUNT OF MY BEGINNINGLESS, GREED, HATRED AND IGNORANCE,
BORN OF MY CONDUCT, SPEECH AND THOUGHT,
I REPENT OF IT NOW.


EMMEI JUKKU KANNON GYO    (Kanzeon Sutra)
KAN ZE ON
NA MU BUTSU
YO BUTSU U IN
YO BUTSU U EN
BU PO SO EN
JO RAKU GA JO
CHO NEN KAN ZE ON
BO NEN KAN ZE ON
NEN NEN JU SHIN KI
NEN NEN FU RI SHIN



Shi Gu Sei Gan Mon
SHU JO MU HEN SEI GAN DO
BON NO MU JIN SEI GAN DAN
HO MON MU RYO SEI GAN GAKU
BUTSU DO MU JO SEI GAN JO
 
Creations are numberless
I vow to free them
Delusions are inexhaustible
I vow to put and end to them
Dharmas are boundless
I vow to perceive them
The enlightened way is unsurpassable
I vow to embody it



Evening Gatha
Let me respectfully remind you,
Life and death are of supreme importance
Time swiftly passes by and opportunity is lost.
Each of us should strive to awaken
Awaken…
Take heed
This night your days are diminished by one.
Do not squander your life...
