Ten Buddha Names

Next, rector (Ino) strikes block with mallet once and intones:
“In the midst of the three treasures which verify our understanding, entrusting ourselves to the Sangha, we recall:”

仰惟三宝咸賜印知
nyan ni san po ansu inshi
仰憑尊衆念
nyan pin son shu nyan

He/she strikes block with mallet once again (this is called “mallet of verse of praise”). Great assembly of monks gassho and recite Ten Buddha Names in unison:

千百億化身釈迦牟尼仏
