Buddham saranam gachhami
Dhammam saranam gachhami
Sangam saranam gachhami
[This is a traditional Buddhist chant
originally written in the Pali language]

I Go to the Lord Buddha (1)

I go to the Lord Buddha for protection-light.
I go to the inner code of life for protection-light.
I go to the Order for protection-light.

When I Go to the Lord Buddha

When I go to the Lord Buddha
For protection-light,
He blesses me.
When I go to the inner code of life
For protection-light,
He illumines me.
When I go to the Order
For protection-light,
He utilises me.
