Oryoki

All:
Buddha was born at Kapilavastu,
enlightened at Magadha,
taught at Varanasi,
entered Nirvana at Kusinagara.
Now I open Buddha Tathagata’s eating bowls;
May we be relieved from self-clinging with all sentient beings.

Liturgist:
In the midst of the Three Treasures, with all sentient beings,
let us recite the names of Buddha:

All:
Pure Dharmakaya Vairochana Buddha;
Complete Sambhogakaya Vairochana Buddha;
Numerous Nirmanakaya Shakyamuni Buddhas;
Future Maitreya Buddha;

All Buddhas throughout space and time;
Mahayana Saddharma Pundarika Sutra;
Great Manjushri Bodhisattva;
Mahayana Samantabhadra Bodhisattva;
Great Compassionate Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva;
All Bodhisattvas Mahasattvas
Maha Prajna Paramita.

Liturgist: (breakfast)

This food comes from the efforts of all sentient beings, past and present,
and its ten advantages give us physical and spiritual well-being and promote
pure practice.

Liturgist: (lunch)

We offer this meal of three virtues and six tastes to the Buddha,
Dharma,and Sangha,and to all the life of the Dharma Worlds.

All:
First, seventy-two labors brought us this food; we should know how it comes to us.
Second, as we receive this offering, we should consider whether our virtue and practice deserve it.
Third, as we desire the natural order of mind to be free from clinging we must be free from greed.
Fourth, to support our life we take this food.
Fifth, to attain our way we take this food.

(Lunch only: All those of the spiritual worlds, now I give you this offering.
This food will pervade everywhere.)

First, this food is for the Three Treasures.
Second, it is for our teachers, parents, nation, and all sentient beings.
Third, it is for all beings in the six worlds.
Thus, we eat this food with everyone.
We eat to stop all evil, to practice good,
to save all sentient beings, and to accomplish our Buddha Way.

All:
The water with which I wash these bowls tastes like ambrosia.
I offer it to the various spirits to satisfy them.
Om Makurasai Svaha!

Liturgist:
May we exist in muddy water with purity like a lotus; thus, we bow to Buddha.
