树音妙乐第十五
Fifteenth [Chapter On] Trees’ Sounds [And] Wonderful Music

佛告阿难:「世间帝王,有百千音乐。自转轮圣王,乃至第六天上,伎乐音声,展转相胜千亿万倍。第六天上万种乐音,不如无量寿国诸七宝树一种音声千亿倍也。亦有自然万种伎乐。又其乐声,无非法音。清畅、哀亮,微妙、和雅,十方世界音声之中,最为第一。

[The] Buddha told Ānanda, ‘[The] world’s emperors have [a] hundred thousand [kinds of] music. From Wheel-Turning Noble Kings, and even [to the] Sixth Heaven above, [their] musical sounds, passing through many [heavens, are] superior [to] one another [by a] thousand koṭis [of] ten thousand times. [The] Sixth Heaven above’s ten thousand kinds [of] musical notes, [are] not equal [to] Immeasurable Life [Buddha’s] Land’s all seven treasures’ trees’ one kind [of] sound [by a] thousand koṭis [of] times. Likewise are [there] naturally ten thousand kinds [of] music. Moreover, their musical sounds [are] without [those which are] not [the] Dharma’s sounds. Pure [and] smooth, moving [and] clear, subtle [and] wonderful, harmonious [and] elegant, of [the] ten directions’ worlds’ sounds within, [they are] as [the] most foremost.
