I bow down with a clear mind, body, and speech
To all the lions-among-humans, leaving none out -
Those who traverse the three times in the worlds
Of the ten directions, however many there may be.
I make obeisance to all the conquerors,
With bowing bodies as numerous as the particles of those worlds,
Perceiving all of the conquerors
Through the strength of prayers that aspire to auspicious deeds.
Upon one particle there are buddhas as numerous as the
particles of these worlds, and
All are seated in the midst of their children.
In this way, all are spheres of reality.
I imagine conquerors filling all of those particles.
In praise of all the sugatas,
I express the excellence of all the conquerors
With all the sound of an ocean of voices in song
And oceans of inexhaustible praise.
I offer to the conquerors
Exquisite flowers, the best garlands,
Musical instruments, ointments, excellent umbrellas,
Superior lamps, and choice incences.
I make offerings to the conquerors
With the best garments, superior perfumes,
Fragrant powders piled as high as Mount Meru -
All in the most excellent arrangements.
I imagine all unsurpassable and vast offerings
For all the conquerors.
With the strength of my faith in auspicious deeds
I bow down and make offerings to all the conquerors.
Whatever sins I have done
With body, speech, and mind
Under the influence of attachment, hostility, or ignorance
I confess each and every one of them.
I rejoice in all merit, whatever it may be,
Of all the conquerors of the ten directions, conqueror's
Pratyekabuddhas, those with more to learn,
Those with no more to learn, and all ordinary beings.
I implore all the protectors,
Lights in the worlds of the ten directions
Who have reached buddhahood, which is without
To turn the peerless wheel of the teaching.
I supplicate with palms joined in prayer
Those wishing to demonstrate their final nirvana -
Please stay for eons equal in number to the particles of
In order to bring happiness and benefit to all beings.
Whatever merit I have accumulated, however slight,
From obeisance, offering, confession,
Rejoicing, imploring, and supplication -
I dedicate it all to enlightenment.
