Verse On Refuge In Buddhas

 

自归于佛,
当愿众生,
绍隆佛种,
发无上意。

– 文殊菩萨
   (华严经: 净行品11: 第20偈)

Personally taking refuge [in the] Buddha[s],
[reflect that] ‘May sentient beings
perpetuate magnificence [of their] Buddha seeds,*
[by] giving rise to the unsurpassable intention.’**

– Manjusri Bodhisattva
   (Avatamsaka Sutra: Chapter 11 On Pure Practices: Verse 20)

* Buddha-nature: potential to be Buddhas
** Bodhicitta: aspiration to be Bodhisattvas, who guide all to Buddhahood
