Seventeenth [Chapter On] Natural Clothing [And] Food

阿难,彼佛国土,诸往生者,具足如是清净色身,诸妙音声,神通功德。

Ānanda, [in] that Buddha land, all those reborn, [are] complete [with] such pure physical bodies, all [with] wonderful voices, supernormal [powers and] meritorious virtues.

所处宫殿、衣服饮食、众妙华香、庄严之具,犹第六天自然之物。

[Their] places dwelt [are] palaces, [with] clothing, drinks, food [and] all wonderful flowers [and] incenses, [as] instruments for adornment, like [the] Sixth Heaven’s natural objects.

若欲食时,七宝钵器,自然在前。金、银、琉璃、砗磲、玛瑙、珊瑚、琥珀、明月、真珠,如是诸钵,随意而至。

If when desiring [to] eat, seven treasures’ alms bowls, naturally [manifest] before [them. Of] gold, silver, lapis lazuli, tridacna, carnelian, coral, amber, bright moon [pearls and] pearls, all such alms bowls, accordingly [as] wished, then arrive.

百味饮食,自然盈满。虽有此食,实无食者。但见色闻香,意以为食,自然饱足。身心柔软,无所味著。事已化去,时至复现。彼佛国土,清净安隐,微妙快乐,次于无为泥洹之道。

[With a] hundred flavours [of] drinks [and] food, [they are] naturally filled fully. Although [there] are these foods, [there are] really no eaters. Merely seeing [their] forms [and] smelling [their] fragrances, wishing to use [them] as food, [they] naturally [become] full. [With] bodies [and] minds gentle [and] soft, without those flavours attached [to]. Served already, [they] dissolve away, [and when meal] times arrive, again appear. That Buddha Land [is] pure [and] tranquil, [with] subtle [and] wonderful happiness [and] bliss, second only to [the] path of unconditioned Nirvāṇa.
