The One Hundred and third Gate
Accomplishment of the state of dhāranī is a gate of Dharma illumination; for [with it] we hear the Dharma of all the buddhas and are able to receive and retain it.
A mystical verse or chant used as a mnemonic device to convey the essence of a entire sutra or fascicle thereof.
May we together with all beings
Accomplish the state of dhāranī
That we may receive and retain the Dharma of all the buddhas .
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
