Place rakusu on head,
Order of Clear Mind Zen
How great, the robe of liberation,
A formless field of merit.
Wrapping ourselves in the Buddha’s teaching, We free all living beings.
San Ge Mon (x 3)
All my past and harmful karma,
Born from beginningless greed, hate, and delusion, Through my body, speech, and mind,
I now fully avow.
San Ki Rai Mon
I take refuge in buddha. May all beings
Embody the great way, Resolving to awaken.
I take refuge in dharma. May all living beings Deeply enter the sutras, wisdom like an ocean.
I take refuge in sangha.
May all beings
Support harmony in the community Free from hindrance.
The Great Heart of Wisdom Sutra
< instructs Doshi>
When Kannon the Bodhisattva of Compassion was practicing the deepest wisdom he <Kneel on Mat> clearly saw that the five aggregates are empty thus transcending distress and suffering. Oh Shariputra form is no other than emptiness, emptiness no other than form, form is exactly emptiness, emptiness exactly form, feeling thought, impulse, and consciousness are likewise like this.
O Shariputra, remember, Dharma is fundamentally emptiness, no birth, no death. Nothing is pure, nothing is defiled. Nothing can increase, nothing can decrease. Hence: in emptiness, no form, no feeling no thought, no impulse, no consciousness; no eye, no ear, no nose, no tongue, no body, no mind; no seeing, no hearing, no smelling, no tasting, no touching, no thinking, no realm of sight, no realm of thought, no ignorance and no end of ignorance, no old age and death and no end to old age and death. No suffering, no craving, no extinction, no path, no wisdom, no attainment. <Rise>
<Shassu, Altar, incense> Indeed, there is nothing to be attained; the Bodhisattvas live this deepest wisdomwith no hindrance in the mind, no hindrance therefore no fear. Far beyond delusive <To mat, Shassu>thinking they finally awaken to complete Nirvana. All Buddhas, Bodhisattvas of past, present, and future live thisdeepest wisdom and therefore reach the most supreme enlightenment. Therefore know that this wisdom, beyond wisdom, is the greatest <Gassho>Dharani, the brightest Dharani, the highest Dharani, the peerless Dharani. It completely ends all suffering. Know this as truth and do not doubt. So set forth this profound wisdom Dharani. Set forth this Dharani and declare: Gone, gone, ¤ gone to the other shore, ¤ attained the other shore, to beyond the other shore, having never left.
