Homage To Maitreya Bodhisattva 南无弥勒菩萨

今天农历正月初一日是弥勒菩萨的圣诞日。南无当来下生弥勒尊佛。

Today, the 1st day of the 1st lunar month, is Maitreya Bodhisattva’s sacred birthday. Homage to the honourable future descending and born Maitreya Buddha.

        佛告弥勒[菩萨]:
「其有得闻,彼佛名号,
    欢喜踊跃,乃至一念,
    当知此人,为得大利,
    则是具足,无上功德。

    是故,弥勒,
设有大火,充满三千
   大千世界,要当过此,
   闻是经法,欢喜信乐,
       受持读诵,如说修行。」

释迦牟尼佛
《无量寿经》

The Buddha told Maitreya [Bodhisattva],
‘If there are those who attain hearing
of that [Amitābha] Buddha’s name [“Āmítuófó”],
with joyful enthusiasm, even if for one thought,
it should be known that these persons, will attain great benefits,
which thus are complete with unsurpassable meritorious virtues.

Therefore, Maitreya, if there is a great fire,
that fully fills the three-thousandfold great-thousandfold world,
all ought to cross this, to hear this sūtra’s [Pure Land] teachings,
with joyful faith, receive, uphold, read and recite them,
to cultivate the practices as said.’

Śākyamuni Buddha
(Immeasurable Life Sūtra)

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
