Lyrics of the songs (Budddhist Sutra)

Lilics -Explained Translation –

1.  Shiki soku Ku 色即空

諦羯諦 波羅羯諦 波羅僧羯諦 羯諦羯諦 波羅羯諦 波羅僧羯諦

摩訶般若波羅蜜心経 観自在菩 行深般若波羅蜜時 照見五蘊皆空 

度一切苦厄 舎利子 色不異空 空不異色 色即是空空即是色

*from “Heart Sutra”

Let’s awaken enlightenment

Let’s awaken it always immediately.

The wisdom to cross the river,

and reach enlightenment of the pureland

was produced from the mercy of Avalokiteśvara

Everything that’s happening was created by your heart,

and it’s on the way to disappear.

When you awaken to this, your suffering disappears.

And you start to create your life under your control.

Because your heart creates the phenomenon,

including your life.

2.  Peace Pagoda 平和パゴダ

一心頂礼、万徳円満、釈迦如来、心身舎利、本地法身、

法界塔婆、我等礼敬、為我現身、入我我入、仏加持故、

我証菩提、以仏神力、利益衆生 発菩提心、修菩薩行、

同入円寂、平等大智、今将頂礼 

*from “Worship sentence for Śarīra

Let’s be mindful, concentrate and worship Buddha.

Buddha, you are the full merits of the universe…

The true reality of your heart, body and ashes,
are the Great Spirit of the Universe.

Spirit of Buddha is in the Pagoda,
It is the three thousand worlds itself.

When I worship the pagoda,
I enter into Buddha and Buddha appears in my heart.

I receive the power of Buddha and awaken to enlightenment.

With the majestic power of Buddha, I give merit to people.

That is why I seek enlightenment
and dedicate my life to Bodhisattva practice.

Let us worship Buddha now.

If you enter into the world of deep enlightenment,
Non-duality wisdom will be produced from your existence.

6.  Kanzeon 観世音

観世音 観世音 ボーディ・サットヴァ 南無アミリタ

観世音 南無佛 与佛有因 与佛有縁 佛法僧縁 常楽我浄
朝念観世音 暮念観世音 念念従心起 念念不離心 

**from “Enmei Jukku Kannon Sutra”
*back voice : from “Avalokiteśvara Sutra” (part of Lotus Sutra)

Avalokiteśvara,
I take refuge in Buddha.
May the suffering of all beings be healed

By Buddha and the teachings,
I will be awakened to Buddha nature, which is deepest in my
heart.

I share the merit of awakening,
constant purification and joyfulness in the heart,
with those people with whom I have a karmic relation.

To share the merit with others,
I will be mindful to Avalokiteśvara
In the morning when I wake up, and in the night when I sleep.

Even though if anything happens in my mind,
My mindfulness will never leave from you.
