Twenty-Seventh [Chapter On] Exhortation [To] Advance [For] Rebirth

佛告弥勒菩萨诸天人等:「无量寿国,声闻菩萨,功德智慧,不可称说。又其国土,微妙安乐清净若此。何不力为善,念道之自然?著于无上下,洞达无边际。

[The] Buddha told Maitreya Bodhisattva, [all] heavenly, human [beings and] others, ‘Immeasurable Life [Buddha’s] Land’s Voice-Hearers’ [and] Bodhisattvas’ meritorious virtues [and] wisdom cannot [be] stated. Moreover, that land [is] subtle [and] wonderful, peaceful [and] blissful, pure like this. Why not utmost do good, [and be] mindful [of the] naturalness of [this] path? [It is] without attachment to [the] above [and] below, [with] thorough understanding without boundaries.

宜各勤精进,努力自求之。必得超绝去,往生安乐国。横截五恶道,恶道自然闭。升道无穷极,易往而无人。

Each should persevere diligently, [and] strive [to] personally seek it. [This will] definitely attain [the] surpassing [to] leave, [to be] reborn [in the] Land [Of] Peace [And] Bliss. Horizontally cutting off [the] five evil paths, [with these] evil paths naturally closed. Ascending [to the] path without [an] exhaustible end, [it is] easy [to be] reborn [there], yet without [many] people [doing so].

其国不逆违,自然之所牵。何不弃世事,勤行求道德?可得极长生,寿乐无有极。

[With] this land not gone against, naturally [are] they [by] that restrained. Why not relinquish worldly matters, [to] diligently practise [and] seek [the] path’s virtues? [This] can attain ultimately long life, [with] longevity [and] bliss not having limits.
