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 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.

We especially offer our practice and our hearts to all those affected by the Covid-19 pandemic, and for those who love and care for them.

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


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

Three deep bows


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.
