With wholehearted reverence we bow
to the relics of the true body
of the Tathagata Shaka,
who is fully endowed with myriad virtues;
to the dharma body which is the fundamental ground;
and to his stupa, which is the whole universe.
With deep respect we venerate the one
who manifested a body for our sake.
Through the sustaining power of the Buddha,
which enters us even as we enter it,
we verify awakening.
By means of the Buddha's spiritual power,
we benefit living beings,
arouse the thought of awakening,
cultivate bodhisattva practice,
and together enter perfect peace,
the knowledge of the equality of all things.
Now let us reverently bow.
