[14.3] The Fourteenth Contemplation: High Grade’s Births’ Contemplation (Of Contemplation Sūtra): The High Grade’s Low Births《观经》第十四观:上辈生想:上品下生

【上品下生】
[14.3] [The High Grade’s Low Births]

上品下生者,亦信因果,不谤大乘。但发无上道心,以此功德,回向愿求生极乐国。

[For] those [of] High Grade’s Low Births, [they] likewise believe [in] cause [and] effect, [and do] not slander [the] Great Vehicle. Only giving rise [to the] unsurpassable path’s mind, with these meritorious virtues dedicating [with the] aspiration [of] seeking birth [in the] Land [Of] Ultimate Bliss.

行者命欲终时,阿弥陀佛,及观世音、大势至、与诸菩萨,持金莲华,化作五百佛,来迎此人。五百化佛,一时授手。赞言:『法子,汝今清净,发无上道心,我来迎汝。』

When [these] practitioners’ lives almost end, Amitā[bha] Buddha, and Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds, Great Power Arrived, with all Bodhisattvas, holding [a] golden lotus flower, manifesting as five hundred Buddhas, [will] come [to] welcome these persons. [These] five hundred manifested Buddhas, at once extending [their] hands, praise [by] saying, “Dharma disciple, you now [are] pure, [and having] given rise [to the] unsurpassable path’s mind, I [have] come [to] welcome you.”

见此事时,即自见身坐金莲华。坐已华合,随世尊后,即得往生七宝池中。

When seeing this matter, [they] immediately personally see [their] bodies seated [upon] golden lotus flowers. Seated already, [the] flowers close, following [the] World-Honoured [One from] behind, [to] immediately attain rebirth within [the] seven treasures’ ponds.

一日一夜,莲华乃开。七日之中,乃得见佛。虽见佛身,于众相好,心不明了。于三七日后,乃了了见。闻众音声,皆演妙法。游历十方,供养诸佛。于诸佛前,闻甚深法。

[In] one day [and] one night, [the] lotus flowers then open. Within seven days, then attaining sight [of the] Buddha. Although seeing [the] Buddha’s body, of all [his] forms’ excellences, [their] minds [do] not understand [them] clearly. Of three [of] seven days later, then understanding clearly [the] seen. Hearing all sounds, [with] all expounding [the] wonderful Dharma. Travelling [in the] ten directions, making offerings [to] all Buddhas. From all Buddhas, before [them], hearing [the] extremely profound Dharma.

经三小劫,得百法明门,住欢喜地。是名上品下生者。是名上辈生想,名第十四观。」

Passing three small kalpas, attaining [the] Hundred Dharmas’ Clear Door, abiding [on the] Joy Ground. [These] are named [as] those [with] High Grade’s Low Births. [These] are named [the] High Grade’s Births’ Contemplation, named [the] Fourteenth Contemplation.’
