50. Mental Affirmation at the Ceremony of the Forging of Relationships by the Grace of the Dharma

Dharmakaya Buddha, Fourfold Grace! Today at the ceremonial establishing of a relationship by the Grace of the Dharma, may You bestow endless light and power on the parents-in-grace, , and the son (daughter)-in-grace, . Through this ceremony, may their relationship continue in grace, and may they advance further in practice and work, so that, by the merits of this relationship, they may attain fruits of goodness benefiting all. This we pray for wholeheartedly.
