namo tassa bagavato arahato sama sambuddhasa
buddhan saranam gaccha mi
dharma saranam gaccha mi
sangah saranam gaccha mi

the buddha's intelligence fills my spirit/pervades my spirit
the buddha's intelligence fills my spirit/pervades my spirit
the buddha's intelligence fills my spirit/pervades my spirit

the buddha's heart is my sanctum for meditation/nirvana
the buddha's heart is my sanctum for meditation/nirvana

the buddha's dharma fills each of my steps
the buddha's dharma fills each of my my steps
the buddha's dharma fills each of my steps

the buddha's heart fills my heart with compassion
the buddha's heart fills my heart with compassion
the buddha's heart fills my heart with compassion


the buddha's posture generates a peace in me
the buddha's posture generates a peace in me

excellent psychic powers
seeing all the realms
