DÂNG HƯƠNG/ TO THURIFY

Incense perfumes the atmosphere,

I vow, I vow to your immeasurable heart

May you, may you certify our sincerity

The smoke, the smoke of incense represents our worship

The beauty of Dharma goes through all around the world

Due to the truth, all beings can escape samsara

We all together keel down here, under the lotus’s calyx

to give the purity, beautiful, and perfumed flowers to you

The halo is so bright

Rely on Buddha of ten directions, we are wholesome

Thousands of your teachings light up everywhere they go

Buddhist all refuge and practice together to be awake (enlightened)
