We offer the merit of our Thanksgiving Day Ceremony to all who have made offerings to this temple of their training, of their time, money, wealth, food and drink, clothing and all other requisites of life. We especially give thanks to Rev. Master Houn Jiyu, to all the monks of our monastic order, to the greater Buddhist Sangha, and to our members who make this temple possible. We thank all those who have visited here in the past year, to all who make deliveries or provide services, to our neighbors, to this valley and all living beings who give it life and share their lives with us. We pray for peace in all the world, we pray that evil may be overcome by good, we pray for the peace of this temple and for the cessation of all disaster. Homage to all the Buddhas in all worlds. Homage to all the Bodhisattvas in all worlds. Homage to the Scripture of Great Wisdom.
