[5] 为何诽谤正法是重罪?
Why Is Slander Of The Dharma A Heavy Transgression?

问曰:如是等计,但是己事,于众生有何苦恼,逾于五逆重罪耶?

Question: [Of] such compared [and] calculated, [this ‘slander of the right Dharma’] however is [a] personal matter. Of [other] sentient beings, [they] have what suffering [and] afflictions [as a result, such that this slander] exceeds of [the] Five Heinous [Transgressions as a] heavier transgression?

答曰:若无诸佛菩萨说世间出世间善道,教化众生者,岂知有仁义礼智信耶?

Answer: If without all Buddhas [and] Bodhisattvas speaking [of] worldly [and] world-transcending good paths, [to] teach [and] transform those sentient beings, how can [they] know, [to] have benevolence, righteousness, propriety, wisdom [and] trustworthiness?

如是世间一切善法皆断,出世间一切贤圣皆灭。

Thus [are] all worldly good Dharmas all severed, [and] world-transcending virtuous noble [ones] all ‘eradicated’.

汝但知五逆罪为重,而不知五逆罪从无正法生。

You only know [the] Five Heinous Transgressions as heavy, yet not knowing [the] Five Heinous Transgressions, [are] from [being] without [the] right Dharma, [that are] born.

是故谤正法人,其罪最重。

Therefore, [of] people [who] slander [the] right Dharma, their transgressions [are the] most heavy.
