I, Now Seeing [And] Hearing [This], Should Accept [And] Uphold [This]
If [a] person [is] without [a] good heart, [one will] not attain hearing [of] this sūtra. Those pure [and] have precepts, thus obtain hearing [of its] right Dharma.
Previously also [having] met World-Honoured [Ones], then able [to] believe these matters, [to] humbly [and] reverently hear [and] practise, enthusiastically [with] great joy.
[Those] arrogant, [with] evil [views and] lazy, [are] difficult [to be] with faith [in] this Dharma. [Those in] past lives [having] met many Buddhas, delight [in] hearing thus [as] taught.
