Verse of Rinse Water (Sessui no ge 折水之偈)

Verse intoned mentally (without being voiced aloud) when pouring off water used to rinse bowls after a meal:

The water I used to wash my bowls
has the flavor of heavenly ambrosia.
I offer it to the host of spirits;
may they all be fully satiated.
gashi sen pas-sui 我此洗鉢水
nyo ten kan romi 如天甘露味
seyo kijinshu
 施與鬼神衆
shitsu ryo toku bo man 悉令得飽滿
On makura sai sowaka 唵摩休羅細娑婆訶
