    Amituofo.. Could you write down the extended gathas in the Universal Door Chapter? We would like to know cause the Sutra spread all over the world don’t have the gathas.. Thank you.. It must be a good thing if all of us can recite the extended gathas… Amituofo..

    Extended Gathas in Sanskrit Universal Door Chapter (following end of verses in the popular version):

    慈悲救世间,
    当来成正觉,
    能灭忧畏苦,
    顶礼观世音。

    With loving-kindness and compassion saving the world,
    in the future accomplishing right awakening [Buddhahood],
    [to be] able to eradicate suffering of anxiety and fear,
    prostrate to Guanshiyin.

    [Just as Guanyin Pusa is a Buddha, ‘will’ be a Buddha, emulate Guanyin to be a Buddha, to eradicate your suffering and others’.]

    法藏比丘尊,
    首座世自在,
    修行几百劫,
    证无上净觉。

    The honourable Fazang [Dharmakara: Dharma Treasury] Bhiksu
    [who became Amituofo; Guanyin Bodhisattva’s teacher],
    in the chief seat of the [King of] World Ease [Lokeshvara(raja) Buddha],
    cultivated [Dharma] practice for several hundred kalpas,
    and realised unsurpassable pure awakening [Buddhahood].

    [Buddhahood and Pure Land thus accomplished.]

    常侍左右边,
    扇凉弥陀尊,
    示三昧幻力,
    供养一切佛。

    [Guanshiyin,] often attends on his left and right sides,
    fanning to cool the honourable Amita[bha Buddha; Amituofo],
    [while] manifesting samadhi’s [meditative concentration] power of illusion,
    to make offerings to all Buddhas.

    [We too can do this in Pure Land – to increase and perfect compassion [merits] and wisdom, to become Buddhas]

    西方清净土,
    安养极乐国,
    弥陀住彼上,
    调御丈夫尊。

    The Western Pure Land,
    the Land of Peaceful Nurturing and Ultimate Bliss,
    Amita[bha Buddha] abides on that land,
    as the honourable Tamer of Men.

    [We too can learn from Amituofo in Pure Land, like Guanyin Pusa does]

    彼土无女人,
    不见不净法,
    佛子今往生,
    乃入莲华藏。

    That land is without women
    [gender differences or discrimination],
    without sight of impure dharmas
    [phenomena of mind and matter].
    Children of the Buddha now reborn there,
    thereupon enter the lotus treasury [of purity].

    [To be born in Pure Land is to be born in a Buddha land’s of purity; the spiritual ideal of the Lotus Sutra]

    彼无量光佛,
    净妙莲华台,
    狮座放百光,
    如娑罗树王。

    That Buddha of Immeasurable Light’s [Amitabha]
    pure and wonderful lotus flower throne,
    his lion seat emits hundreds of light,
    similar to the Sala Tree King [Salendra-raja] Buddha’s.

    [Amituofo’s light of compassion and wisdom shines in all directions to bless and receive beings.]

    如是世间尊,
    三界无等伦,
    礼赞积功德,
    速成最胜人。

    Such is the World-Honoured One,
    in the three spheres [of desire, form and formlessness] without equal.
    Respectful praise [of him] accumulates meritorious virtues,
    for swiftly accomplishment as the most excellent persons
    [who practise mindfulness of Amituofo to reach his Pure Land
    to quickly attain enlightenment to help all do the same].
