【Light Offering Aspiration Prayer】
May the light of the lamp be equal to the great three thousand worlds
and their environments,
May the wick of the lamp be equal to the king of mountains – Mount Meru.
May the butter be equal to the infinite ocean.
May there be billions of trillions of lamps in the presence of each and every Buddha.
May the light illuminate the darkness of ignorance of all sentient beings
From the peak of samsara down to the most torturous hell,
Whereby they can see directly and clearly all the ten directions’ Buddhas and bodhisattvas and their pure lands.
OM VAJRA ALOKE AH HUM (X3)
E MA HO
I offer these beautifully exalted clear and luminous lights
To the thousand buddhas of the fortunate eon,
To all the buddhas and bodhisattvas of the infinite pure lands
and of the ten directions,
To all the gurus, meditation deities, dakas, dakinis, dharma protectors, and the assembly of deities of all mandalas.
Due this, may my father, mother, and all sentient beings in this life
and in all their future lives,
Be able to see directly the actual pure lands of the complete and perfect buddhas,
May they unify with Buddha Amitabha in inseparable oneness,
Please bless me and may my prayers be actualized as soon as possible,
Due to the power of the truth of the Triple Gem and the assembly of deities of the three roots.
TADYATHA OM PANCHA GRIYA
AVA BODHANAYE SOHA (X1)
*Alternatively, if you’re busy, one can recite OM AH HUM (X3) when making an individual light offering.
