Hontu sabbe pi panino.
May all beings:
who have fallen into suffering be without suffering,
who have fallen into danger be without danger,
who have fallen into sorrow be without sorrow.

Ettavata ca amhehi
Sambhatam puñña-sampadam
Sabbe devanumodantu
Sabba-sampatti-siddhiya.
For the sake of all attainment and success
May all deities rejoice
In the extent to which we have gathered a consummation of merit.

Danam dadantu saddhaya
Silam rakkhantu sabbada
Bhavanabhirata hontu
Gacchantu devatagata.
May they give gifts with conviction, may they always maintain virtue,
May they delight in meditation, may they go to a heavenly destination.

Sabbe buddha balappatta
Paccekanañca yam balam
Arahantanañca tejena
Rakkham bandhami sabbaso.
From the strength attained by all the Buddhas,
The strength of the Private Buddhas,
By the power of the Arahants,
I bind this protection all around.

  • 23.48 MAHA JAYA MANGALA GATHA

Mahākāruṇiko nātho – hitāya sabbapāṇinaṃ
Puretvā pāramī sabbā, – patto sambodhimuttamaṃ
Etena saccavajjena, – hotu te jaya mangalam.
Jayanto bodhiyā mūle, – Sakyānaṃ nandivaḍḍhano
Evameva jayo hotu, – jayassu jayamaṅgale.
Aparājitapallaṅke, – sīse puthuvipukkhale
Abhiseke sabbabuddhānaṃ, – aggappatto pamodati.
Sunakkhataṃ sumaṅgalaṃ, – suppabhātaṃ suhuṭṭhitaṃ
Sukhaṇo sumuhutto ca, – suyiṭṭhaṃ brahmacārisu.

Padakkhiṇaṃ kāyakammaṃ, vācākammaṃ padakkhiṇaṃ

padakkhiṇaṃ manokammaṃ, paṇīdhi te padakkhiṇe

Padakkhiṇāni katvāna, – labbhante te padakkhiṇe.
