中文歌詞 濟公活佛 慈訓
中文/Chinese scripture by Ji-Gong Living Buddha (Holy Teacher)

Preliminary translation

 
This song was written in honor of Transmitting Master Yu, who attained Dao (returned to Heaven) on August 14, 2003 (a few hours before the blackout in New York and much of the Northeast).
Master Yu was responsible for Tong-De Temple and later for Happy Buddha Precious Temple. Although she did not live to see the completion of our new temple, she has always been with us in spirit.
The song describes her qualities and the fulfillment of her vows, which allowed her to return to her original position in Heaven. Lao-Mu bestowed upon her the title of 淨化大仙 Jing-Hua Da-Xian (Immortal of Purification).
