Verses Spoken by Prince Light of Great Power
Illumined by Buddha's light,
All beings are peacefully happy;
All pains of existence cleared away,
Their minds are filled with joy.
See the hosts of enlightened beings
Gathering from the ten directions,
All emitting clouds
Extolling the praises of Buddha.
The enlightenment sight produces wondrous sound,
Extremely deep and far reaching,
Able to eliminate the suffering of sentient beings;
This is the Buddha's spiritual power.
Everyone's paying reverent respect,
All greatly joyful at heart,
Together before the World Honored One,
Gazing at the King of Truth.
~The Flower Ornament Scripture (Avatamsaka Sutra),
Book Six: Vairocana
