Instruction on the Contemplation Sutra, 21-24

The pure, glorious light of the Bodhisattvas,

In a flash of thought and simultaneously,

Illumines each and every Buddha’s assembly

And gives benefit to multitudes of beings. (21)

They manifest heavenly musical instruments, flowers, cloth,

Fine incense, and perfect offerings, with which they worship the Buddhas;

They praise and extol the merits of the Buddhas

Without discriminative thoughts. (22)

If there is any world in the universe

Without the treasure of merit of the Dharma,

Bodhisattvas resolve to be born there

And to preach the Dharma like a Buddha. (23)

I have written this discourse and composed verses

With the wish to see Buddha Amideva

And, together with all sentient beings,

Be born in the Land of Peace and Bliss. (24)
