46. Mental Affirmation at the Ceremony of Entry into the Order

Dharmakaya Buddha, Fourfold Grace, today may , a dharma friend who entered into this Order, be bestowed with a special brightness and power, so that (his/her) believing mind might not regress eternally and he (she) may exert himself/herself in his/her practice and work, finally accomplishing the great and perfect fruition of attaining Buddhahood and delivering all sentient beings. This we pray for wholeheartedly.
