  Vows and Fueko Translation
Godo only:
SHU JO MU HEN SEIGAN DO Countless beings I vow to liberate
Everyone:
⊙ BONNO MUJIN SEIGAN DAN
⊙ HOMON MURYO SEIGAN GAKU
⊙ BUTSUDO MUJO SEIGAN JO ⊘
Greed, hatred, ignorance without end, I vow to abandon
Dharma gates without measure, I vow to penetrate
The way of the Buddha, I vow to attain
Gong only:
NEGA WAKU WA KONO KUDOKU WO MOTTE
AMANEKU ISSAI NI OYOBOSHI
WARERA TO SHUJO TO MINA TOMO NI BUTSUDO
WO CHOSEN KOTO WO
May the good that comes from saying these sutras
flow through all the earth
and touch all that live there.
Everyone:
⊙ JI HO SAN SHI I SHI FU
⊙ SHI SON BU SA MO KO SA
⊙ MOKO HO YA HO RO MI ⊘
This I ask of the Buddhas
of all ten directions and all three times
and of the Bodhisattvas and Mahasattvas
and of the great wisdom of the other side
the wisdom that leads to the truth.
