The Shakujo

We have received a great and welcome gift from a donor in Japan. I will describe this in more detail later; for now, I would like to offer a verse in gratitude for this support of our practice.

Past various Buddhas held the Shakujo and attained Buddhahood. Present various Buddhas hold the Shakujo and attain Buddhahood. Future various Buddhas will hold the Shakujo and they will attain Buddhahood. Therefore, Namah the holding of the Shakujo and respect the Three Treasures...

This is part of a cycle of practices called Kujo Shakujo, from the "Transference and Generation of Vows." May the merit extend to all beings.
