Planting seeds of Bodhichitta

Seedlings sprout

Strong roots establish

Saplings gradually develop

Flowers bud

Protecting kindheartedly with virtue and wisdom

Upholding faith with great compassionate actions

Your lotus flowers blossom

Continuing the lineages of the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas

Benefiting sentient beings
