Vanna gandha gunopetam,
Etam kusum santati,
Pujayami Munindassa
Siripada saroruhe.
Pujemi Buddham
Kusumen nena
Punnena metena labhami mokham
Puppham milayati
Yatha Idam me
Kayo tathayati vinasa bhavam
Ghanasarappa ditena
Dipena tamadhansina
Tiloka dipam sambuddham
Pujayami tamonudam.
Sugandhi kaya vadanam
Ananta guna gandhina
Sugandhi naham gandhena
Pujayami Tathagatam
Buddham Dhammam...
