When sentient beings of the evil world of the five defilements
Entrust themselves to the selected Primal Vow,
Virtues beyond description, explanation, and conceptual understanding
Fill those practicers
Listed above are Seven Masters
Born on the 1st day of the first month
In the first year of Emperor Bidatsu,
1521 years after the passing of the Buddha.
It is taught, concerning Namu-amida-butsu,
That its virtue is like the vast waters of the ocean;
Having myself received that pure good,
I direct it equally to all sentient beings.
