     星期天圣地亚哥佛光寺佛诞节的法会庄严肃穆,那篇由星云大师撰写的佛诞节祈愿文优美感人,情深意切,而这篇诗文的英语翻译也同样优美感人,禁不住要把它摘抄下来,跟喜欢英文和佛学的朋友分享:

  O Great compassionate Buddha,

  We are here to worship with sincerity and respect

Your birth into this world.

 When all the flowers bloomed during the warmth of spring,

Exotic flowers were contending in beauty and fascination in Lumbini garden,

everyone in Kapilavatthe was rejoicing,

Gentle breezes spread the fragrance,

all birds sang in unison;

From that moment on, there was promise in the human world;

From that moment on, there were Buddha teachings in the human world.

You, with one hand pointed to the sky and the other pointed to the earth,

issued the declaration of being the uniquely honored one in the world.

You took seven steps---clusters of lotus flowers appeared-----

and used the pure and clean Buddh-truth,

 Like water,

To wash away the stains of earthly illusion.

immediately---

Muddy mountain streams became crystal clear,

Burned-out torches flourished,

the heavens played wonderful music, the earth displayed rare, auspicious signs;

All these signs were welcoming your arrical to this world.

O Great compassionate Buddha,

Because of your birth in this mundane world

Your forty-nine years of teaching the Dharma will have influence for far more than countless kalpas!

The three-hundred-plus meetings to discuss the sutras will benefit far mare the countless sentient beings!

OH Great compassionate Buddha,

It was you who broke the caste system,

who preached the doctrine of conditional causation and the equality of all beings.

who opened all beings' minds to the Buddh wisdom and views;

who awakened all sentient beings out of ignorance.

Oh, Great compassioante Buddha,

in order to receive the joyous occasion of your birth to the mundane world

with respect,

In some places, full of joyful atmostphere.

People decoraet with lanterns and colored hangings;

in some places, people parade and the sound of gongs and drums shakes the sky;

Monasteries hold the ceremony of bathing the image of the Buddha.

Devotees and there families celebrate the Buddha's birthday.

This is how your followers commemorate your gracisou kindness!

this is how your followers remember your blessings and protection with gratitude!

Oh great compassionate Buddha,

Please pity my hopelessness and lack of virtue;

 with compassion,

I can only chant your great sacred name

Mindfully, as though remembering my own kind mother

Oh Great compassioante Buddha,

I am kneeling in front of you,

I am passing my hands over your golden body,

I am offering nmy sincere devotion,

I pray and hope that your Buddha-truth brightens the world and that you always preach the Buddha-truth.

 

Pleas allow nme to act in response to your Buddha eye

and clearly see and understand the suffering of all beings.

Please allow me to act in response to your Buddha mouth

and delight in saying wonderful and kind words;

Please allow me to act in response to your Buddha body and often be a friend willing to help;

please allow me to act in response to your Buddha mind and do more deeds to benefit all beings.

 

Oh great compassionate Buddha,

We are willing to use our entire life to expound and propagate the truth;

we are willing to devote your life to liberate all sentient beings.

OH GREAT COMPASSIONATE BUDDHA

PLEASE ACCEPT MY SINCERE PRAYERS;

PLEAS ACCEPT MY SINCERE PRAYERS!
