[15.3] The Fifteenth Contemplation: Middle Grade’s Births’ Contemplation (Of Contemplation Sūtra): The Middle Grade’s Low Births《观经》第十五观:中辈生想:中品下生

【中品下生】
[15.3] [The Middle Grade’s Low Births]

中品下生者,若有善男子、善女人,孝养父母,行世仁慈。

[For] those [of] Middle Grade’s Low Births, if [there] are good men [and] good women, [with] filial piety support [of their] fathers [and] mothers, [who] practise worldly benevolence [and] loving-kindness.

此人命欲终时,遇善知识,为其广说阿弥陀佛国土乐事,亦说法藏比丘四十八愿。

These persons, when [their] lives almost end, meet good-knowing friends, for them extensively speaking [of] Amitā[bha] Buddha Land’s blissful matters, likewise speaking [of] Dharma Treasury Bhikṣu’s forty-eight vows.

闻此事已,寻即命终。譬如壮士屈伸臂顷,即生西方极乐世界。

[Having] heard these matters already, soon then [with their] lives ending. For example, like [a] strong man bending [or] extending [an] arm [in] a short moment, [they are] immediately born [in the] Western Land [Of] Ultimate Bliss.

经七日已,遇观世音,及大势至。闻法欢喜,得须陀洹。

[Having] passed seven days already, [they will] meet Contemplator [Of The] World’s Sounds, and Great Power Arrived. Hearing [the] Dharma [with] joy, attaining [as] Srotāpannas.

过一小劫,成阿罗汉。是名中品下生者。是名中辈生想,名第十五观。」

Passing one small kalpa, accomplishing [as] Arhats. [These] are named [as] those [with] Middle Grade’s Low Births. [These] are named [the] Middle Grade’s Births’ Contemplation, named [the] Fifteenth Contemplation.’
