The Great Bell Chant

“May the sound of this bell

penetrate deep into the cosmos

Even in the darkest spots

Living beings are able to hear it clearly

So that all suffering in them ceases

Understanding comes to their hearts

And they transcend the path of sorrow and death.

Listening to the bell

I feel the afflictions in me begin to dissolve

My mind calms

My body relaxes

A smile is born on my lips

Following the sound of the bell

My breath brings me back to the safe island of mindfulness

In the garden of my heart

The flowers of peace bloom beautifully.”

~ The Great Bell Chant
