GATE OF SWEET NECTAR (OBON VERSION)

Invocation for the Manifestation of the Ten Buddhas

At this time, when the veil between life and death is thin, we honor and remember all those who have gone before us.
We freely give, to any being in need, the merit of our practice.
We sincerely vow to help all beings and to accept all support from the ten directions.
