Verse For Breaking Free From Hell [1]

If [a] person desires [to] understand fully,
[the] three periods’ [i.e. past, present and future

[one] should contemplate [the] Dharma realm’s [i.e. universe] nature,
[to] all [be] only [by the] mind created.

Verse For Breaking Free From Hell [2]

[With] that [Amitā(bha)] Buddha’s fundamental vow’s power,
hearing [of his] name [‘Āmítuófó’, with] desire [for] rebirth,
all [will] reach that [Pure] Land [of his,
to] personally attain non-retrogression [for Buddhahood].

– Śākyamuni Buddha

得入无上道,
速成就佛身?’

Verse For Breaking Free From Hell [3]

[to] swiftly accomplish [the] Buddha’s body?’

破地狱偈 [4]

如来已离,
三界火宅,
寂然闲居,
安处林野。

今此三界,
皆是我有,
其中众生,
悉是吾子。

而今此处,
多诸患难,
唯我一人,
能为救护。

– 释迦牟尼佛
《法华经》
譬喻品第三

Verses For Breaking Free From Hell [4]

[The] Thus Come [One has] already departed,
[from the] Three Spheres [of Desire, Form and Formlessness]
which are like a] burning house,
peacefully resting, safely dwelling [in] wild forests.

Now, [these] Three Spheres,
all [of them] are [what] I have,
[and] those sentient beings within,
all are my children.

Yet now [in] this place,
[with] much suffering [and] difficulties,
only I one person,
[am] able [to] save [and] protect [them].

– Śākyamuni Buddha
(Dharma [Lotus] Flower Sūtra:
Chapter 3 [On] Parables)
