The Great Samantabhadra Gatha
Samantabhadra, of profound conduct and vows,
Admonishing towards the Supreme Bodhi Resolve,
Enabling all in the Three Sagely and Ten Holy Stages,
Beholding the honourable Amitabha,
Fulfilling and performing the Ten Regal Vows,
Benefits obtained, utterable only by the Buddhas,
Harmonizing Enlightenment fruition and Mind’s cause,
Attaining the perfect and undefiled Dharmakaya.
Harmonizing Enlightenment fruition and Mind’s cause,
Attaining the perfect and undefiled Dharmakaya.

Praise to Samantabhadra Bodhisattva
O Bodhisattva of Great Conduct, Samantabhadra is He,
Boundless and Myriad are His Ocean of Vows,
Dignified and Mounted Upon A Six-Tusked Elephant,
Born of Prajna, Emanation from a Seven-Gem Lotus,
One Supreme in all Samadhis,
With fundamental Admirable, Encompassing and Perfected Virtue,
His Lauded Jewelled Eminence reaching and instructing the Saha Realm,
His Potent Response and Spiritual Might, the Great Thousand Realms quakes,
Homage! One of Silver Realm of Er Mei Summit,
Great Conduct, Samantabhadra Bodhisattva!
Namo Samantabhadraraja Bodhisattva! (Recite while circumnambulating)
