    Bowing  to  the  earth


                        张刚 试译


    In gratitude, I bow to all generations of ancestors in my blood family.

        I see my father and mother, whose blood, flesh and vitality are in my own veins and nourishing every cell in me. Through them I see all four my grandparents whose expectations, experiences, and wisdom, have been transmitted from so many generations of ancestors. I carry in me the life, blood, experience, wisdom, happiness, and sorrow of all generations. The suffering and all the elements that need to be transformed, I am practicing to transform. I open my heart, flesh, and bones to receive the energy of insight, love, and experience transmitted to me by all my ancestors. I see my roots in my father, mother, grandfather, grandmother, and all ancestors.
      I know that I am only the continuations of this ancestral lineage. Please support, protect, and transmit to me your energy. I know wherever there are children and grandchildren ancestors are also there . I know that parents always love and support their children and grandchildren, although they are not always able express it life based on gratitude, joy, confidence, respect, and loving kindness. As a continuation of my ancestors, I bow deeply and their energy to flow through me. I ask my ancestors for their support, protection, and strength.  






    In gratitude, I bow to all general of ancestors in my spiritual family.

      I see in my teacher, the one who has shown me the way of love and understanding, the way to breathe, smile, forgive and live deeply the present moment.

    Through my teacher, I see other teachers who have contributed to my development. I see the teachers of my ancestors and I see

    Buddhist teachers. My teachers do not only go back to Buddha but to the Prophets, Jesus Christ, and the spiritual tradition which  was in my ancestors before the coming of Christianity.

    The energy of all generations of ancestral teachers has entered me and is creating peace, joy, understanding and loving kindness in me, I know that the energy of our spiritual teachers has transformed the world deeply. Without these spiritual teachers I would not know the way to practice to bring peace and happiness into my life and into the life and into the lives of my family and society. I open my heart  and my body to receive the energy of understanding, loving kindness and protection from the awakened teachers, the teachings of truth and the community of practitioners, I am a continuation of the awakened teacher, the teachings of truth and community of practitioners. I ask my spiritual ancestors to transmit to me their infinite source of energy, peace, stability, understanding and love. I shall practice to transform the suffering in myself and the world and to transmit the energy of my spiritual family to future generations of practitioners.   







    In gratitude, I bow to this land all the ancestors who it available.

     I see that I am whole, protected and nourished by this land  and by all the living beings who have been here and  have made life easy and possible for me,I see and all others known and unknown who by their talent, perseverance and love have made this country a place where people fo many origins can live, I see those who have worked hard to build schools, hostitals, bridges adn roads; to protect human rightsl, to develop science and technology in a compassionate way, and to fight for freedom and social justice. I see myself touching my acestors of origin who have lived on this land for such a long time. I see those acestors who have known how to live in peace and harmony with nature; protecting the mountians, forests, animals, vegetation and minerals of this land, I feel the energy of this land penetrating my body  and soul, supporting and accepting me. I vow to cultivate and maintain this energy and transmit it to future generations. I vow to contribute in transforming the violence, hatred, and delusion that still lie deep in the collective consciousness of this society so that future generations will have mors safety, joy and peace. I ask this land for its protection and support. 






    In gratituge and compassion I bow dowm and transmit my energy to those I love.

    All the energy I have received I now want to transmit to my father, my mother and everyone I love who has suffered and worried because of me and for my sake. I know I have not been mindful enough in my daily life. I also know that those who love me have had their own difficulties. They have suffered because they were not lucky enough  to have had their own difficulties. They have suffered because they  were not lucky enough to have an environment that encouraged their full development. I transmit my energy to my mother, my father, my brothers, my beloved ones, my husband, my wife, my children so that their pain will be relieved and they can smile and feel the joy of being alive. I want all of them  to be healthy and joyful, I know that when they are happy I shall also be happy. I no longer feel resentment toward any of them. I pray that all anecstors in my blood and spiritual families will focus their energies toward each of them to protect and support them. I know that I am not separate from them, I am one with those I love. 




    In understanding and compassion I bow dowm to reconcile with all who have made me suffer.

     I open my heart and send forth my lives of love and ubderstanding to everyone who has made me suffer even if they dsetroyed much of my life and lives of those I love. I know that these people have undergone a great deal of suffering  and that their hearts are overloaded with pain, anger and hatred. Anyone who has suffered as much as they have will make others suffer. I know that they have been unlucky and may never have been cared for and loved. Life and society have dealt them many hardships. They have been wronged and abused. They have not been guided in the path of mindful living and have many wrong perceptions about life. I pray to my ancestors in my blood and spiritual families to channel to the people who have made me suffer, the energy of love and protection, so that their hearts will be able to receive the nectar of love and blossom like a flower. I pray that they can be transformed so that they can experience the joy of living and so that they do not continue to make themselves and others suffer. I see their suffering and do not want to see it continue any longer. I do not want to hold any feelings of hatred or anger in myself toward them. I channel my energy of love and understanding to them and ask all my ancestors to help them.
