Wholeheartedly we pay reverence to the relics of the true body of the Tathagata Shakyamuni, endowed with all the virtues; to the dharma body which is the fundamental ground; and to his stupa, which is the entire universe. We venerate the one who manifested a body for our sake, entering us as we enter him. Through the compassion of the Buddha, we realize awakening. By means of the Buddha’s spiritual power, we benefit living beings, arouse the thought of liberation, cultivate bodhisattva practice, and together enter perfect nirvana and attain knowledge of the equality of all things. Now let us reverently bow.
