to ride with the Three Flowers (San HUa) through the deep red sky
flowing along with the drifting clouds in the Male Phoenix carriage,

In the bright vermilion rays appears a beautiful jade-horned magical divinity [with the appearance of] a beast with greyish,
dark green [rows of] scales like a fish with a fiery mane.

The Marvellous Power (Ling) advances forward, like a procession having
a giant funeral banner at its forefront.
Handsome as jade are these people coming out of the Void (Xu), Precious are the weapons held by them as they follow behind. But the Three Origins (San Yuan - Heaven Origin, Earth Origin, and Man Origin)

pace off the length of Void-Emptiness (Xu).
Their are four Commanders in Chief (Huai) who begin the

of the hundred million who take advantage of [these things].
