Wei Tuo Bodhisattva
Praise to Wei Tuo (Vajrapani) Bodhisattva:
Wei Tuo Master warrior of the devas;
Transformation body Bodhisattva;
Vast and deep your mighty vows to cherish and guard the Buddha's teaching.
Your vajra sword can quell the demon armies!
Merit, virtue, all beyond compare.
Now we pray you will be guardian of our minds.
Namo Universal Eye Bodhisattva Mahasattva,
Maha Prajna Paramita!
