Monday - Thursday Dedication of Merit after 7am zazen online

Chant leader:

Gratefully we offer the merit of our practice to the great teachers who have transmitted the lamp through space and time; to all beings in the 6 realms; and to the great earth that sustains ourlife

May we especially hold in our hearts the well being of: [names of people who are ill or suffering] and all those who suffer from illness, oppression and difficulty.

And may our remembrance and dedication to practice ease the passing of [names of people who have recently died] and all those who have died from war, violence, disease, and natural disaster.

May we, together with all beings, realize the truth of Buddha's Way~ ~

All:

All Buddhas ten directions, three times
All honored ones bodhisattva mahasattvas
Wisdom beyond wisdom
Maha Prajna Paramita

Three deep bows

All:

Oh Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, please concentrate your hearts on me. I, ____________ , Buddha's Disciple, greet the new day with humility and joy.

May I today in all actions of body, speech and mind:
Affirm life; give generously; keep the mind clear;
treasure the body; be courageous and kind in speech;
open to and heal through strong emotions;
and return to Buddha, Dharma and Sangha on every breath.

Final bows and close.
