释迦牟尼佛对龙树菩萨所预言
Śākyamuni Buddha’s Prophecies On Nāgārjuna Bodhisattva

《摩诃摩耶经》卷下:
Mahāmāyā Sūtra’s Lower Scroll:

[阿难]: 我于往昔曾闻世尊说…「正法于此,便就灭尽。六百岁已,九十六种诸外道等,邪见竟兴,破灭佛法,有一比丘名曰马鸣,善说法要,降伏一切诸外道辈。

[Ānanda]: I in [the] past, once heard [the] World-Honoured [One (i.e. Śākyamuni Buddha)] say… ‘[When the] Right Dharma in this [world, is] then approaching compete eradication, six hundred years later, [when] all ninety-six kinds [of] externalist paths [and] others, [are with] evil views completely thriving, [there will] be one bhikṣu named Horse Neigh [(i.e. Aśvaghoṣa Bodhisattva), who can] skilfully speak [the] Dharma’s essence, [to] subdue all eternalist paths’ contemporaries.

七百岁已,有比丘名曰龙树,善说法要, 灭邪见幢,燃正法炬。」

Seven hundred years later, [there will] be [a] bhikṣu named Dragon Tree [(i.e. Nāgārjuna Bodhisattva), who] skilfully speaks [the] Dharma’s essence, [to] eradicate evil views’ pillars, [and] ignite [the] Right Dharma’s torch.’

《入楞伽经》第八卷:
Laṅkāvatāra Sūtra’s 8th Scroll:

大慧菩萨白佛言:「佛灭度后,是法何人受持?」

Great Wisdom [i.e. Mahāmati] Bodhisattva to [Śākyamuni] Buddha said, ‘After [the] Buddha [enters] parinirvāṇa, [of] this Dharma, which person [will be able to] receive [and] uphold [it, for learning, practice, realisation and teaching]?’

佛以偈答曰:「于我灭度后,南天竺大国,有大德比丘名龙树菩萨,住欢喜地,为人说法,能破有无见,往生安养国。」

[The] Buddha [with] verses answered, ‘Of my parinirvāṇa after, [in a] great country in Southern India, [there will] be [a] great virtuous bhikṣu named Dragon Tree [i.e. Nāgārjuna] Bodhisattva, [who] abides [on Bodhisattvas’ stage of the First] Ground [Of] Joy, for people speaking [the] Dharma, able [to] destroy views [of] existence [and] non-existence, [who will be] reborn [in the] Land [Of] Peaceful Nurturing [i.e. Amitābha Buddha’s Western Pure Land Of Ultimate Bliss].’
