【上品上生】
[14.1] [The High Grade’s High Births]

佛告阿难,及韦提希:「上品上生者,若有众生,愿生彼国者,发三种心,即便往生。何等为三?一者,至诚心。二者,深心。三者,回向发愿心。具三心者,必生彼国。

[The] Buddha told Ānanda and Vaidehi, ‘[For] those [of] High Grade’s High Births, if [there] are sentient beings, aspiring [for] birth [in] that land, giving rise [to] three kinds [of] minds, [they will] immediately [attain] rebirth. What are [the] three? First, [is the] utmost sincere mind. Second, [is the] profound [faithful] mind. Third, [is the] mind [of] dedication [with] giving rise [of] aspiration [to be born]. Those complete [with these] three minds, [will] definitely [be] born [in] that land.

复有三种众生,当得往生。何等为三?一者,慈心不杀,具诸戒行。二者,读诵大乘方等经典。三者,修行六念,回向发愿,愿生彼国。具此功德,一日乃至七日,即得往生。

Moreover, [there] are three kinds [of] sentient beings, [who] will attain rebirth. What are [the] three? First, [are those with] loving-kindness’ mind, [who do] not kill, [and are] complete [with] all precept practices. Second, [are those who] study [and] recite [the] Great Vehicle’s vast [and] equal sūtras. Third, [are those who] cultivate practice [of the] Six Mindfulnesses, dedicating [with] giving rise [of] aspiration, aspiring [for] birth [in] that land. Complete [with] these meritorious virtues, [for] one day and even seven days, [they will] immediately attain rebirth.

生彼国时,此人精进勇猛故,阿弥陀如来,与观世音、大势至、无数化佛、百千比丘、声闻大众、无量诸天,七宝宫殿。观世音菩萨,执金刚台,与大势至菩萨,至行者前。阿弥陀佛,放大光明,照行者身。与诸菩萨,授手迎接。观世音、大势至、与无数菩萨,赞叹行者,劝进其心。

When [being] born [in] that land, these persons, [with] diligence courageous [and] powerful thus, Amitā[bha] Thus Come [One], with Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds, Great Power Arrived, innumerable manifested Buddhas, [a] hundred thousand Bhikṣus [and] Voice-Hearers’ great assembly, immeasurable all heavenly [beings, and] seven treasures’ palaces [appear]. Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds Bodhisattva, holding [a] golden vajra dais, with Great Power Arrived Bodhisattva, arrive before [these] practitioners. Amitā[bha] Buddha emits great bright light, [that] illuminates [these] practitioners’ bodies. With all Bodhisattvas, extending [their] hands [to] welcome [and] receive [them]. Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds, Great Power Arrived, with innumerable Bodhisattvas, [will] highly praise [these] practitioners, [to] encourage progress [with] their minds.

行者见已,欢喜踊跃。自见其身,乘金刚台,随从佛后,如弹指顷,往生彼国。

[These] practitioners, seeing [this] already, [become] joyful [and] enthusiastic. Personally seeing their bodies, riding [upon] vajra thrones, [and] following [the] Buddha [from] behind, like [that within a] fingersnap’s moment, [they are] reborn [in] that land.

生彼国已,见佛色身,众相具足。见诸菩萨,色相具足。光明、宝林,演说妙法。闻已,即悟无生法忍。经须臾间,历事诸佛,遍十方界。于诸佛前,次第受记。还至本国,得无量百千陀罗尼门。是名上品上生者。

Born [in] that land already, seeing [the] Buddha’s physical body, [with] all [his] forms complete. Seeing all Bodhisattvas, [with their] physical forms complete. [With] bright lights [and] treasure groves expounding [the] wonderful Dharma, [having] heard [it] already, immediately awakening [to] Non-Arising [Of] Dharmas’ Forbearance. Passing [only] a moment’s interval, one by one serving all Buddhas, everywhere [in the] ten directions. From all Buddhas, before [them], one after another, receiving predictions. Returning to [the] original land, attaining immeasurable hundred thousands [of] Dhāraṇī doors. These [are] named [as] those [with] High Grade’s High Births.
