Offering the Mandala

about

In the Buddhist tradition, there is a gorgeous prayer read before a teaching is given. For me, this piece is what the offered images of that prayer sound like...

'Here is the great Earth,
Filled with the smell of incense,
Covered with a blanket of flowers,
The Great Mountain, The Four Continents,
Wearing a jewel Of the Sun, and Moon.

In my mind I make them The Paradise of a Buddha,
And offer it all to You.
By this deed May every living being
Experience The Pure World.'

Idam guru ratna mandalakam niryatayami.
