地藏赞颂 林钰堂

南无地藏王菩萨

恆沙誓愿 救拔群生 渡尽方证真
功德利益 不可思议 有缘咸蒙恩
亿万方便 不舍罪众 分身遍法界
大力威神 承佛咐嘱 救苦担重任

Praise to the Earth Treasure Bodhisattva Yutang Lin

Namo Earth Treasure Bodhisattva

With great vows of salvation as numerous as sands of the Ganges,
Devoted to the rescue of all beings suffering in transmigration,
Willing to attain Enlightenment only after all others have so attained,
Earth Treasure, the great Bodhisattva of compassionate vows!

His merits, benevolence and benefits, all so inconceivable;
Seeing, gazing, saluting, prostrating to his statue brings peace,
Hearing, reciting, chanting, remembering his name yields grace;
Earth Treasure, the great Bodhisattva of compassionate vows!

With expedient means numbered in billions of trillions,
Never thought of giving up the attempts to help sinful beings;
Everywhere in the Dharmadhatu appears some of his transformations;
Earth Treasure, the great Bodhisattva of compassionate vows!

Mighty power with awe-inspiring presence is his to command;
The solemn and arduous career to salvage suffering beings
With Buddha's approval and appointment is his to sustain;
Earth Treasure, the great Bodhisattva of compassionate vows!

Note added on June 21, 2006: Note that in the English version, "Sadhana of Bodhisattva Earth Treasure," that was done in 2003 I had used a different version of this praise that was originally in Chinese. It was probably because I had forgotten that I had translated it a few years back already.
