受持菩萨戒之五种利益

明人忍慧强,能持如是法,未成佛道间,安获五种利。
一者十方佛,悯念常守护。
二者命终时,正见心欢喜。
三者生生处,为诸菩萨友。
四者功德聚,戒度悉成就。
五者今后世,性戒福慧满。
此是诸佛子。

释迦牟尼佛
《梵网经菩萨戒本》

Five Benefits [Of] Receiving [And] Upholding Bodhisattva Precepts

[Of] understanding persons [with] patience [and] wisdom strong, [who are] able [to] uphold such Dharma, [those] yet [to] accomplish [the] Buddha’s path, [when in] between, [will] peacefully obtain five kinds [of] benefits. First, [the] ten directions’ Buddhas, [will] sympathetically [be] mindful [of them], constantly guarding [and] protecting [them]. Second, when at life’s end, [they will be with] Right Views [and have] minds [with] joy. Third, [at] places [in] life [after] life, [they will be] with many Bodhisattvas [as] friends. Fourth, [they will have] meritorious virtues gathered, precepts [and] perfections all accomplished. Fifth, [in their] present [and] future lives, [they will have their] nature’s precepts’ blessings [and] wisdom completed. These are all [the] Buddhas’ disciples.

Śākyamuni Buddha
(Bráhma Net Sūtra’s Bodhisattva Precepts’ Text)
