Dedication: Funeral


The Dedication of blessing, thanks and love that we recite at PZI funerals.


Sunlight and moonlight and rain,

dawn and noon and dusk and deepest night

reveal the Buddha heart at peace

each being perfect in your  time.

each creature perfect in its time—

vivid in the light.

As waves come home to sea

now you return

you move beyond this earth and our concerns

we bless you, we wish you well,

[name of deceased]

Thank you for your time with us,

Go on with thanks and sweetest love.


All Buddhas throughout space and time

All awakened beings, great beings

The heart of perfect wisdom
