Greatly Kind and Compassionate Bodhisattva 

Guan Yin Praise

Bodhisattva Guan Yin is wonderful past gratitude,

Pure and clear are her adornments, gained through practice ages long,

Sea-vast a red lotus flower fragrant rests beneath her foot,

Bay-curve of an autum moon is in the crescent of her brows,

Every where and constantly, sweet dew sprinkles from her vase,

In her hand, the willow branch, through the countless autumn,

Prayers depart a thousand hearts, in a thousand hearts she answers,

Sailing the sea of suffering, crossing people over.

Na Mo Greatly Kind and Compassionate Bodhisattva of The Crystal Land, Who Dwells on Potola Mountain and Observes The Sounds of The World.
