“All Buddhas” end-of-service-chant change
In alignment with other Branching Streams sanghas and our parent temple, San Francisco Zen Center, the practice leadership at the Austin Zen Center has changed the end-of-service-chant from “ALL BEINGS” to “ALL HONORED ONES,” which is a more accurate translation.
The new chant will be:
“ALL BUDDHAS, TEN DIRECTIONS, THREE TIMES,
ALL HONORED ONES, BODHISATTVA-MAHASATTVAS,
WISDOM BEYOND WISDOM, MAHA PRAJNA PARAMITA…”
