Commemorative Birthday Ode to Tian-Ran Ancient Buddha.
The 19th day of the Seventh Lunar Month (2022/08/16)
We are blessed with the vast heavenly grace that is greater than Mount Sumeru;
we shall be forever grateful for the immense virtues of the patriarchs.
Patriarch has shouldered the holy mission of redeeming the three realms,
beared the calamities, brought salvation to the world, and transferred the lost ones.
He has made the great vow to save all sentient beings;
be resolute even when facing the treacherous storms.
Spurred the horse to full speed as time is almost up,
worked proactively with others for the last salvation.
No matter the number of challenges, barriers, dangers, or tests,
he has faced them without fear.
Endlessly and tirelessly,
he has traveled tens of thousands of miles across straits and ocean.
He has sailed the dharma boat with us and ferried sentient beings back to heaven
where we shall all meet again.
三曹普渡の重責を担い 禍を転じて福と為し 世を救い衆生を済度する
大願を立てて乾坤を済度し 狂風豪雨に恐れず 志しを堅くする
天時が急いでいる為 駆け馬に鞭をうつように 末法末世に積極的に努める
何回もの試練に耐えられ 赴湯蹈火をし 心に恐れはない
