[The Ten Verse Life Prolonging Kannon Sutra] Kanzeon! Hail to Buddha!
We are one with Buddha, Bound to the Awakened One, And to the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha. We are always joyful and pure, In the morning, thinking of Kanzeon, In the evening, thinking of Kanzeon, Continuous thoughts of her rise from our hearts, Those thoughts never leave our hearts.
