O Avatar of the era1I bow to You, O Avatar of the era,
O emblem of infinite Compassion-Height.
Constantly I sing Your Victory-Song.
This mad world is running toward destruction.
Around me is the poison of jealousy, cruelty
I bow to You, O Avatar of the era,
Which is the receptacle of boundless Light,
Is filled with Heavenly Light and Power.
O Avatar of the era,
My world invokes You alone.
