Excerpt from Plum Village’s New Touching the Earth Chant

Mother of Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and all beings,
nourishing, holding and healing all,
Bodhisattva Gaia, Great Mother Earth, precious jewel of the cosmos, to whom we bow in gratitude. [Bell]

Radiating light in all directions, source of life on Earth, 
Mahavairocana Tathagata, Great Father Sun,
Buddha of infinite light and life,
to whom we bow in gratitude. [Bell]
