Here is a prayer which many Kuan Yin devotees will appreci-
ate. It should be read paragraph by paragraph mental y and then
contemplated upon:


"NAMO TA-PEI KUAN SHIH YIN P'USA"
Out of the great compassion of the Buddha Amitabha, from his
pure Dharma Body, you appear in a faultless and crystal pure
body of white light.
Due to this glorious birth, the worlds of beings benefit ed. With
compassionate eyes you look on all sentient beings, to render
them help, give them hope and save them from damnation. You
gave to the world the Great Path of Compassion which is, in
actuality, the Path to Liberation.
Since then countless great ones who pursued this wonderful Path
have been saved from the rounds of birth and rebirth. is great
Path is before me right now and I am indeed the fortunate one.
I wish to show my gratitude and pray that I too may successful y
tread your Path so as to il uminate my mind of delusion.
To you, Kuan Shih Yin, Great Bodhisat va, I prostrate. I shall
always hold dear your name and recite your great mantra of sal-
vation: `OM MANI PADME HUM'.
I pray that there will be peace and harmony in my country and
in all the world. I pray that evil may be overcome by good, for
the happiness of those who are in every state of suffering, and for
the ending of all disasters in the world.
Please accept my offerings of incense, flowers, fruits, prayers and
the merits of the recitations of the Great Compassionate Dharani


(Ta Pei Jou) and the Heart Sutra as a mark of my love and grati-
tude for your Great Compassion for having shown me the way:
`HOMAGE TO YOU, O GREAT MERCIFUL ONE. HOMAGE TO
SAKYAMUNI BUDDHA, AMITABHA BUDDHA AND ALL THE
BUDDHAS OF THE TEN DIRECTIONS.
HOMAGE TO UNIVERSAL WORTHY TA-SHIH-CHI P'USA,
HOMAGE TO THE GREAT AND VIRTUOUS PU HSIEN P'USA,
HOMAGE TO THE HOLY AND WISE WEN-SHU P'USA,
HOMAGE TO THE COMPASSIONATE TI-TSANG WANG P'USA
AND ALL THE BODHISATTVAS OF THE TEN DIRECTIONS.
rough these Great Victorious Ones, the Path to Nirvana is
known which puts an end to all Samsaric sufferings. Out of love
and gratitude and wisdom, I shall henceforth take refuge in the
ree Jewels, realise and confess my faults, practise the Precepts,
observe the Bodhisat va Vows and perfect the Six Paramitas.
I pray for your blessings to ensure that I shall always be on your
Great Path of Compassion in this and every life-time until
Buddhahood has been won.
May all sentient beings be blessed by your saving powers and be
happy for all eternity. Kindly help their seed of Enlightenment
to bud and blossom so that its beauty may fill the universe. I
prostrate to you, Kuan Shih Yin P'usa.
