Dedication of Merits

A beautiful and touching song by Venerable Heng Sure, edited to video and pictures from Camp Ehi-Passiko.

Whenever you have partaken in meritorious deeds, do be mindful and keep in mind to dedicate whatever merits that you may have gained, and share them with your loved ones, the people around you, and to all sentient beings.

May every living being,
Our minds as one and radiant with light,
Share the fruits of peace
With hearts of goodness, luminous and bright.

If people hear and see,
How hands and hearts can find in giving, unity,
May their minds awake,
To Great Compassion, wisdom and to joy.

May kindness find reward,
May all who sorrow leave their grief and pain;
May this boundless light,
Break the darkness of their endless night.

Because our hearts are one,
This world of pain turns into Paradise,
May all become compassionate and wise,
May all become compassionate and wise.
