From Greater Boston Zen Center - BRIEF LITURGY AND DEDICATION, in response to today's tragic event.

*Recommended in front of home or desk altars, or silently in your mind as circumstances may require. Mental offerings are powerful, and liturgy is one way to respond when no response is enough. Please also consider giving blood if your health and circumstance allows. *

"Sho Sai Myo Kichijo Dharani"
No mo san man da moto nan
oha ra chi koto sha sono nan
to ji to en gya gya gya ki gya ki un nun
shifu ra shifu ra hara shifu ra hara shifu ra
chishu sa chishu sa chishu ri chishu ri
soha ja soha ja sen chi gya shiri ei
somo ko (x3)

Buddha-nature pervades the whole universe existing right here, now. Whenever these devoted invocations are sent forth they are perceived and subtly answered. We dedicate their merits to all members of our human family, throughout space and time. We dedicate their merits to those who suffer as a result of calamity, cruelty, and war. We especially dedicate our service to all those in Boston, running in and watching the marathon, to all first-responders and journalists, to medical and security staff, to family and friends of those near or involved in Monday's events.
