Dedication to the Ancestors
Buddha nature pervades the whole universe, existing right here now. Mysterious chains
of cause and condition bring true Dharma to this hall today.
We return the virtue of our recitation of The Great Prajñā Pāramitā Heart Sutra and the
Shō Sai Myō Kichijō Dharani to
The Ancient Seven Buddhas, Dai Oshō,
Shakyamuni Buddha, Dai Oshō,
Bodhidharma, Dai Oshō,
Tōzan Ryōkai, Dai Oshō,
Rinzai Gigen Dai Oshō,
Dōgen Kigen, Dai Oshō,
Keizan Jōkin, Dai Oshō,
Hakuin Ekaku Dai Oshō,
Chōrō Nyogen, Dai Oshō,
Hannya Gempō, Dai Oshō,
Dai’un Sogaku, Dai Oshō,
Haku’un Ryōkō, Dai Oshō,
Mitta Sōen, Dai Oshō,
Kōun Zenshin, Dai Oshō;
and to you our beloved founder Gyōun Chōtan, Dai Oshō;
the love and wisdom we’ve received from you returns to you,
and again to us, endlessly ongoing.
Let true Dharma continue, Sangha relations become complete:
All Buddhas throughout space and time,
all Bodhisattvas, Mahasattvas,
the great Prajñā Pāramitā.
