~  Read by Thich Nath Hanh, chanted by brother Phap Niem.

May the sound of this bell penetrate deep into the cosmos.
Even in the darkest spots, living beings are able to hear it clearly,
So that all suffering in them ceases,
Understanding comes to their heart And they transcend the path of sorrow and death.

The universal dharma door is already open.
The sound of the rising tide is heard clearly.
The miracle happens:
A beautiful child appears in the heart of the lotus flower.
One single drop of this compassionate water
Is enough to bring back the refreshing spring to our mountains and rivers.

Listening to the bell, I feel the afflictions in me being to dissolve –
My mind calm, my body relaxed,
A smile is born on my lips.
Following the sound of the bell,
My breath brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness.
In the garden of my heart, the flowers of peace bloom beautifully.
