That we may realize the samādhi of the Tathāgata.
ate of dhyāna is a gate of Dharma illumination; for it fulfills the ten powers.

Dhyāna :
A deeper awareness of oneness which is inclusive of perception of body, mind, senses and surroundings, yet remaining unidentified with it (meditation)

May we together with all buddhas
Practice daily Shikantaza
That we may fulfill the ten powers.

May this offering bring peace to all beings
May our actions contribute to the harmony of The Universe
And, may all hearts and minds be opened to the present
