Sangha Sobhana Gatha
for the Long Life of the Sasana & the Illumintation and Beauty of the Sangha
A bhikkhu consummate in moral virtue,
A bhikkhuni who is widely learned,
A male lay disciple who has faith,
And a confident female lay disciple,
These illuminate the Sangha,
These are the beautifiers of the Sangha.
