Verse for Bathing Buddhas / 浴佛偈

关于以上五浊 
'此信愿庄严一声阿弥陀佛,
[1]
转劫浊为清净海会,
[2]
转见浊为无量光,
[3]
转烦恼浊为常寂光,
[4]
转众生浊为莲华化生,
[5]
转命浊为无量寿。'

- 净土宗九祖蕅益大师《佛说阿弥陀经要解》

On The Five Defilements Above:
'With such Faith and Aspiration adorning each recitation of “Amituofo”, 

[1] Transform the defilement of the kalpa into an ocean-wide assembly of purity, 
[2] Transform the defilement of views into immeasurable light [of wisdom], 
[3] Transform the defilement of afflictions into the eternal still light [of peace], 
[4] Transform the defilement of sentient beings into lotus flower transformed beings, and 
[5] Transform the defilement of [limited] lifespans into immeasurable life.'
