[08] The Eighth Great Vow: Constantly Following Buddhas To Learn (Of Universal Virtue’s Practices’ And Vows’ Chapter)《普贤行愿品》第八大愿:常随佛学

【第八大愿:常随佛学】
[08] [The Eighth Great Vow: Constantly Following Buddhas (To) Learn]

复次善男子,言常随佛学者,如此娑婆世界毗卢遮那如来,从初发心,精进不退,以不可说不可说身命而为布施。剥皮为纸,析骨为笔,刺血为墨,书写经典,积如须弥。

Furthermore, good man, speaking [of] that, [of] constantly following Buddhas [to] learn, like this Sahā World’s Vairocana Thus Come [One], from first giving rise [to the] mind [for Buddhahood], diligent without retreating, with unspeakably unspeakable bodies [and] lives then for giving. Peeling skin for paper, breaking apart bones for pens, [and] pricking blood for ink, [for] copying sūtras, accumulating [to be] like Sumeru.

为重法故,不惜身命,何况王位、城邑聚落、宫殿园林,一切所有,及余种种难行苦行。

For [the] honoured Dharma thus, not sparing body [and] life, furthermore kings’ positions, cities [and] towns, palaces [and] gardens, all that possessed, and [with] other all kinds [of] difficult practices [and] ascetic practices.

乃至树下成大菩提,示种种神通,起种种变化,现种种佛身,处种种众会。

And even under [the] tree accomplishing Great Bodhi, revealing all kinds [of] supernormal [powers], giving rise [to] all kinds [of] changes [and] transformations, appearing [with] all kinds [of] Buddhas’ bodies, dwelling [at] all kinds [of] assemblies.

或处一切诸大菩萨众会道场,或处声闻及辟支佛众会道场,或处转轮圣王、小王眷属众会道场,或处刹利及婆罗门、长者、居士众会道场,乃至或处天龙八部、人非人等众会道场。处于如是种种众会,以圆满音,如大雷震,随其乐欲,成熟众生,乃至示现入于涅槃。

Perhaps dwelling [at] all Great Bodhisattvas’ assemblies’ bodhimaṇḍas, perhaps dwelling [at] Voice-Hearers’ and Pratyekabuddhas’ assemblies’ bodhimaṇḍas, perhaps dwelling [at] Wheel-Turning Noble Kings’, Minor Kings’ family members’ assemblies’ bodhimaṇḍas, perhaps dwelling [at] kṣatriyas’ and brahmins’, elders’, laypersons’ assemblies’ bodhimaṇḍas, and even perhaps dwelling [at] heavenly [beings’ and] dragons’ eight divisions’, human-[yet]-non-humans’ [and] others’ assemblies’ bodhimaṇḍas. Dwelling in thus all kinds [of] assemblies, with perfect sounds, like great thunder shaking, according [to that] they joyfully desire, maturing sentient beings, and even manifesting entering of Parinirvāṇa.

如是一切,我皆随学。如今世尊毗卢遮那,如是尽法界虚空界,十方三世一切佛刹,所有尘中一切如来,皆亦如是,于念念中,我皆随学。

[From] thus all, I all accordingly learn. Like [the] present World-Honoured Vairocana, thus exhausting [the] Dharma Realm’s empty space’s realms, [the] ten directions’ three periods’ all Buddha lands’ all dust [motes] within, [their] all Thus Come [Ones], all likewise thus. In thought [to] thought within, I all accordingly learn.

如是虚空界尽,众生界尽,众生业尽,众生烦恼尽,我此随学无有穷尽。念念相续,无有间断。身语意业,无有疲厌。

Thus [with] empty space’s realms exhausted, sentient beings’ realms exhausted, sentient beings’ karmas exhausted, sentient beings’ afflictions exhausted, my this following [to] learn [will] not have [a] complete end. [With] thought [to] thought [in] continuous succession, not having interruption. [With] body, speech [and] mind karmas, not having weariness.
