寿命无量第十一
Eleventh [Chapter On] Lifespans [Being] Immeasurable

佛语阿难:「又无量寿佛,寿命长久,不可称计,汝宁知乎?假使十方世界无量众生,皆得人身,悉令成就声闻缘觉,都共集会,禅思一心。竭其智力于百千万劫,悉共推算,计其寿命长远之数,不能穷尽,知其限极。

[The] Buddha said [to] Ānanda, ‘Moreover, [as] Immeasurable Life Buddha’s lifespan [is] long-lasting, [and] cannot [be] counted, [how can] you know [it]? If [the] ten directions’ worlds’ immeasurable sentient beings, all attain [the] human body, [with] all enabled [to] accomplish [as] Voice-Hearers [and those by] Conditions Awakened, [with] all together assembled, [to] meditatively contemplate single-mindedly, exhausting their wisdom’s power, for [a] thousand million kalpas, all together calculating, counting his lifespan’s far-reaching number, [it will] not [be] able [to be] exhausted, [to] know its limit.

声闻菩萨、天人之众,寿命长短,亦复如是,非算数譬喻所能知也。

Assemblies of Voice-Hearers, Bodhisattvas [and] heavenly [and] human [beings there, of their] lifespans’ lengths, [they are] likewise thus, not [by] counting [and] analogies able [to be] known.
