When faith is undefiled, the mind is pure;
Obliterating pride, it is the root of reverence,
And the foremost wealth in the treasury of religion,
Being a pure hand to receive the practices.
Faith is generous, the mind not begrudging,
Faith can joyfully enter the Buddha’s teaching;
Faith can increase knowledge and virtue;
Faith can assure arrival at enlightenment.
Faith makes the faculties pure, clear and sharp;
The power of faith is strong and indestructible,
Faith can annihilate the root of affliction,
Faith can turn one wholly to the virtues of buddhahood.
Avatamsaka Sutra - 331-332
