Prayer for Light

 

Amida, Oneness of Life and Light,

I enjoin my hands and pray to you,

Who resides in every quarter, direction and within my heart.

Let your Primal Vow kindle the Light of Dharma in all beings,

For those who grope bewildered in the gloom of sorrow.

Namo Amida Buddha.

 

Refuge Prayer

 

Ocean of Oneness, I take refuge in you.

Entrusting with my whole heart and mind

In your Primal Vow;

I am empowered by you to live a full, Compassionate and creative life,

I dedicate myself to the service of all beings,

Striving to help others realize,

Their human potential and Enlightenment;

May your Teachings guide me

Throughout the day, in my relationships, work and play.

Namo Amida Buddha
