[The Ninth Contemplation: Everywhere Contemplating All Physical Bodies’ Forms’ Contemplation]
[The] Buddha told Ānanda and Vaidehī, ‘[With] this contemplation accomplished already, next [that] should also [be] contemplated [are] Immeasurable Life Buddha’s body’s form’s bright lights.
Ānanda, [you] should know, [that] Immeasurable Life Buddha’s body [is] like [a] thousand million koṭis [of] Yama Heaven’s Jambu River’s golden colours. [The] Buddha’s body [is as] tall [as] six hundred thousand koṭis’ nayutas [of] Ganges River’s sands [of] yojanas.
[The] fine white hair between [his] brows, [to the] right circumambulating [and] winding, like five Sumeru mountains.
[The] Buddha’s eyes [are] like [the] four great ocean’s waters, [with their] blueness [and] whiteness distinct [and] clear.
[His] body’s all pores, show [and] emit bright light, like Mount Sumeru. That Buddha’s halo’s light, [is] like [that of a] hundred koṭis [of] three-thousandfold great-thousandfold worlds.
In [his] halo’s light within, [there] are [a] million koṭis’ nayutas [of] Ganges River’s sands [of] manifested Buddhas. Each [and every] one manifested Buddha, likewise has many innumerable manifested Bodhisattvas, with [them] as attendants.
Immeasurable Life Buddha has eighty-four thousand forms. Each [and every] one form within, each has eighty-four thousand appearance-following excellences. Each [and every] one excellence within, again has eighty-four thousand bright lights. Each [and every] one bright light, everywhere illuminates [the] ten directions’ worlds’ sentient beings [who are] mindful [of the] Buddha, gathering [and] receiving, not forsaking [them]. His light’s forms’ excellences, and with [those of the] manifested Buddhas, cannot [be] completely spoken [of].
[You] only should recollect [and] contemplate, [to] enable [the] mind’s eye [to] see. Those seeing these matters, [will] immediately see [the] ten directions’ all Buddhas. With seeing all Buddhas thus, [this is] named Samādhi [From] Mindfulness [Of] Buddha. Those having this contemplation, [are] named [as having] Contemplation [Of] All Buddhas’ Bodies.
With contemplation [of the] Buddhas’ bodies thus, likewise seeing [the] Buddhas’ minds. Those Buddhas’ minds, are great loving-kindness [and] compassion. With unconditional loving-kindness, gathering all sentient beings.
Those [who] have this contemplation, [when] relinquishing [their] bodies [for] other lives, [will be] born before all Buddhas, [to] attain Non-Arising’s Forbearance. Therefore, those wise should [with] continual minds, attentively contemplate Immeasurable Life Buddha.
Those contemplating Immeasurable Life Buddha, [should] from one form’s excellence enter. Only contemplating [the] fine white hair between [his] brows, [to the] utmost enabled [to be] understood clearly. [For] those seeing [the] fine white hair between [his] brows’ form, [the] eighty-four thousand forms’ excellences, [will] naturally then appear. Those [who] see Immeasurable Life Buddha, [will] immediately see [the] ten directions’ immeasurable all Buddhas. Attaining sight [of] immeasurable all Buddhas thus, all Buddhas [will] manifest [in the] present [to] confer predictions.
[This] is [known] as Everywhere Contemplating All Physical Bodies’ Forms, named [the] Ninth Contemplation. Those having this contemplation, [are] named as [having] right contemplation. If [there are] those [with] other contemplations, [they are] named as evil contemplations.’
