23. Mental Affirmation at the Sixtieth Birthday Ceremony

Dharmakaya Buddha, Fourfold Grace!
With a whole heart, I am pleased and appreciative that , a disciple of the Buddha, has lived sixty years without any trouble and with the grace and virtue of the love and protection of the Fourfold Grace.
In the future, may You further endow this person with the endless grace and power to maintain good and long health; to progress in activities that benefit the Way, and to prepare nutritious provisions for the spirit,
I offer this prayer with single‐mindedness.
