【第二观:水想】
[02] [The Second Contemplation: Water’s Contemplation]

次作水想。见水澄清,亦令明了,无分散意。

Next [to] have [is] Water’s Contemplation. [With] seeing [of] water tranquil [and] clear, likewise enabled [to be] clearly understood, without [having] scattered thoughts.

既见水已,当起冰想。

[Having] seen [the] water already, [you] should give rise [to] Ice Contemplation.

见冰映彻,作琉璃想。

[With] seeing [of] ice shining penetratingly, have Lapis Lazuli Contemplation.

此想成已,见琉璃地,内外映彻。

[With] this contemplation accomplished already, see [the] lapis lazuli ground, inside [and] outside shining penetratingly.

下有金刚七宝金幢,擎琉璃地。其幢八方,八楞具足。一一方面,百宝所成。一一宝珠,有千光明。一一光明,八万四千色,映琉璃地,如亿千日,不可具见。

Below has vajra [and] seven treasures’ gold pillars, supporting [the] lapis lazuli ground. These pillars [have] eight sides, [with] eight corners complete. Each [and every] one side’s surface, [is with a] hundred treasures, [by] those composed. Each [and every] one treasure gem, has [a] thousand bright lights. Each [and every] one bright light, [has] eighty-four thousand colours, shining [on the] lapis lazuli ground, like [a] koṭi thousand [of] suns, [that] cannot [be] completely seen.

琉璃地上,以黄金绳,杂厕间错。以七宝界,分齐分明。一一宝中,有五百色光。其光如华,又似星月。悬处虚空,成光明台。

[The] lapis lazuli ground above, [is] with yellow-gold cords, mixing [and] mingling, [in] between inlaying. With seven treasures’ boundaries, divided equally, distinctly [and] clearly. Each [and every] one treasure within, has five hundred colours’ lights. Their lights [are] like flowers, also resembling stars [and the] moon. Suspending [to] dwell [in] empty space, composing daises [with] bright lights.

楼阁千万,百宝合成。于台两边,各有百亿华幢、无量乐器,以为庄严。八种清风,从光明出,鼓此乐器,演说苦、空、无常、无我之音。是为水想,名第二观。

[With] towering pavilions ten million, [of a] hundred treasures composed. At [the] daises’ both sides, each has [a] hundred koṭi [of] flower banners, [and] immeasurable musical instruments, with [these] as adornments. Eight kinds [of] cool breezes, from [the] bright lights emit, striking these musical instruments, expounding sounds on suffering, emptiness, impermanence [and] non-self. [This] is [known] as Water’s Contemplation, named [the] Second Contemplation.
