Sutra of Golden Light Puja

 Devotional text based on the Sutra of Golden Light.     1. WORSHIP AND HOMAGE I worship the Buddhas, Who are like oceans of virtues, Mountains gleaming with the colour of gold, Like Sumeru, the King of Mountains. Even with hundreds of voices, In a thousand aeons, The Buddhas virtues cannot be told; For the Conquerors qualities are supreme: They are all-encompassing and without number. The virtues of a single Buddha, Can never be told. Each Buddha is golden, Shining like pure gold. He has fine eyes, Pure and faultless like sapphire. His shapely limbs are as pure gold And his body shines With all the marks of excellence. The Buddha is a blazing fountain Of glory, splendor and renown. He is a Buddha-sun, Removing the darkness of the three realms With his rays of compassion. He sooths the tortured minds Of those consumed By the fire of the impurities With the sage’s meshes of moonbeams. Homage to the Buddha, Whose Enlightenment is pure, Who is eloquent in the pure Dharma, Who is free from all evil ways, Who has pure understanding of life’s true nature! How endless is the Buddha’s glory, Who is a bringer of joy, A bringer of good, A bringer of blessing, The source of every inconceivable blessing.     2. GOING FOR REFUGE AND GREAT ASPIRATION With my head I bow down to all the Buddhas. Now and for ever, I go for refuge To all the Buddhas. I will worship the Buddhas In the ten directions. I will deliver from all woe, All beings throughout space. I will establish in the tenth stage All the inconceivably many beings. May they then become Tathagatas. I will follow the Bodhisattva career For millions of aeons For the sake of every single being Until every one is delivered From the ocean of woe. I will make shine the Buddha-qualities. I will cross over from the ocean of existence. And I will fill the flood of the Buddha-sea, The deep ocean of virtues and omniscience, With inconceivable Buddha-qualities. May I become an excellent Buddha With hundreds of thousands of samadhis, With inconceivable mantras, With all the powers and virtues Of Supreme Enlightenment.     Refuges and Precepts Namo Tassa Bhagavato Arahato Samma Sambuddhassa Namo Tassa Bhagavato Arahato Samma Sambuddhassa Namo Tassa Bhagavato Arahato Samma Sambuddhassa Buddham Saranam Gacchami Dhammam Saranam Gacchami Sangham Saranam Gacchami Dutiyampi Buddham Saranam Gacchami Dutiyampi Dhammam Saranam Gacchami Dutiyampi Sangham Saranam Gacchami Tatiyampi Buddham Saranam Gacchami Tatiyampi Dhammam Saranam Gacchami Tatiyampi Sangham Saranam Gacchami     Ten Precepts Panatipata Veramani Sikkhapadam Samadiyami Adinnadana Veramani Sikkhapadam Samadiyami Kamesu Micchacara Veramani Sikkhapadam Samadiyami Musavada Veramani...
