Here is the translation of the upper half of the
和光院下炬 Wakouin Ako
Wakou Temple Funeral Ritual Recital
(Ako has the verbatim meaning of putting torch on stake, i.e.
a sentence recited by the monk (Zen) while putting fire on the stake)
Let us make a low bow in front of Buddha
and rise our heads again when we enter the pure
land of Amitabha.
Kaiyo, the Old Monk of the High Peaks
Underneath, there are two Zen style poems calligraphed by two monks.
