2011Surangama Meditation Retreat Vow at Zen Center of Sunnyval
CHUNG TAI ZEN CENTER OF SUNNYVALE
2011 SURANGAMA MEDITATION RETREAT
VOW

Venerable JianHu  (March 27, 2011)


    Vow


Revered, Immovable One! Holder of the wonderful and profound truth,
King of Surangama, the rarest in the world,
You purge our delusions lasting countless life times
So we may attain the Dharma-body without taking eons.

To repay the kindness shown me by the Buddha,
I offer my deep conviction to serve myriad worlds:
May I attain full realization, and, as a Dharma-king,
Return to liberate beings as numerous as Ganges’ sands.

I humbly implore the World Honored One to witness this vow:
I’ll take the lead to enter this murky realm of five turbidities,
Even if one sentient being has not yet attained Buddhahood,
I will never enter nirvana.

Great in valor and in power! Great Compassionate One!
Help me discover and remove the subtlest of my delusions,
So I may attain supreme enlightenment soon,
And turn everywhere into a temple for awakening.

Even if emptiness should vanish,
This vajra vow will never change.

主七法師 釋見護  (2011年3月27日 )

發願文

妙湛總持不動尊   首楞嚴王世希有
銷我億劫顛倒想   不歷僧祇獲法身
願今得果成寶王   還度如是恆沙眾
將此深心奉塵剎   是則名為報佛恩
伏請世尊為證明   五濁惡世誓先入
如一眾生未成佛   終不於此取泥洹
大雄大力大慈悲   希更審除微細惑
令我早登無上覺   於十方界坐道埸
舜若多性可銷亡   鑠迦羅心無動轉
