The words to the sharing of merits

Postby adeh » Mon Dec 14, 2009 7:40 pm

I was just wondering if anyone out there would have the words to the sharing of merits that Bhikkhu Bodhi uses at the end of his Dhamma talks. With Metta Mark.

I don't know what he says after but could this be it or similar?

Dedication of Merit

Puññassidāni katassa
Yānaññāni katāni me
Tesañca bhāgino hontu
Sattānantāppamāṇaka.

May all beings — without limit, without end —
have a share in the merit just now made,
and in whatever other merit I have made.

Ye piyā guṇavantā ca
Mayhaṃ mātā-pitādayo
Diṭṭhā me cāpyadiṭṭhā vā
Aññe majjhatta-verino;

Those who are dear & kind to me —
beginning with my mother & father —
whom I have seen or never seen;
and others, neutral or hostile;

Sattā tiṭṭhanti lokasmiṃ
Te-bhummā catu-yonikā
Pañc'eka-catuvokārā
Saṃsarantā bhavābhave:

beings established in the cosmos —
the three realms, the four modes of birth,
with five, one, or four aggregates —
wandering on from realm to realm:

Ñātaṃ ye pattidānam-me
Anumodantu te sayaṃ
Ye cimaṃ nappajānanti
Devā tesaṃ nivedayuṃ.

If they know of my dedication of merit,
may they themselves rejoice,
And if they do not know,
may the devas inform them.

Mayā dinnāna-puññānaṃ
Anumodana-hetunā
Sabbe sattā sadā hontu
Averā sukha-jīvino

By reason of their rejoicing
in my gift of merit,
may all beings always live happily,
free from animosity.

Khemappadañca pappontu
Tesāsā sijjhataṃ subhā.

May they attain the Serene State,
and their radiant hopes be fulfilled.
This offering maybe right, or wrong, but it is one, the other, both, or neither!

Thanks guys but those aren't the verses I'm looking for...I found the first half of the chant in the Safeguard Recitals translated by Ven. Anandajoti......but Bhikkhu Bodhi then goes on to chant four more verses that aren't included in the book...and it's those verses I'm looking for...Mark.

Hi Adeh,
adeh wrote:No....not there...thanks anyway....Mark.

I know the chant you mean, [Something like: "Akasata, chabomata, deva, naga, mahitika..."] and it's not a chant that tends to be in the Thai-oriented books/websites that you are being referred to. I guess it's popular in Sri Lanka.

I did find it somewhere and have it saved in a file, but I'll have to search through some CDs... Later...

OK, here it is.

There are some variations in his repetitions but this gives the basics:

http://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&q=cac ... hGyanL5sPQ
TO MAKE DEVAS PARTICIPATE IN MERITS

Akasattha ca bhummattha
Deva naga mahiddhika
Punnam tam anumoditva
Ciram rakkhantu loka-sasanam

May all beings inhabiting space and earth
Devas and Nagas of mighty power
having shared this merit
long and protect the Dispensation

http://www.jaibheem.com/BV-Page-12.htm
Ettavata ca amhehi
Sambhatam punna sampadam
Sabbe Deva anumodantu
Sabba sampatti siddhiya

May all beings share this merit,
which we have thus acquired.
May it contribute greatly to their happiness.

A word of warning: I tried that link and it took a very long time to load. I gave up but I'm not quite sure whether it had crashed my browser by then or was still trying to load enormous files.
