CHUNG TAI ZEN CENTER OF SUNNYVALE
2011 SURANGAMA MEDITATION RETREAT VOW
Venerable JianHu (March 27, 2011)
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.
