Eastern Jìn [Dynasty’s] Liú Yímín
Chéngzhī, [with] style name [of] Zhòngsī, [and] alternative name [of] Yímín, relied [on] honourable [Great Master Huì]yuǎn [慧远] [for] group cultivation [of] Pure Land [practice], focusing [on] seated meditation having contemplation’s method. Then [after] half [a] year, thus in concentration within, seeing [the] Buddha’s light illuminating, also [with the] ground all gold [in] colour.
Living [on the] mountain [for] fifteen years, [in his] final years, also [with] contemplation [and] mindfulness [of] Buddha within, [he] saw Amitā[bha] Buddha, [with] body purple-gold [in] colour, [with his] fine hair’s light spreading [and] illuminating, hand lowering [to] receive, with [this] approaching his room. Chéngzhī, [feeling] reassured [and] fortunate, [mixed with] grief wept, personally stated, ‘How [can I] attain [the] Thus Come [One], for me rubbing [my] crown, [and] with [his] robes covering me.’ [The] Buddha then for [him] rubbed his crown, [and] extended [his] kaṣāya for covering him.
[On] another day, [with] contemplation [and] mindfulness [of] Buddha, [he] also saw [his] body enter [a] seven-treasure great pond, [with] lotus flowers blue [and] white in between one another, [and] its water crystal clear, like [the] boundless shore.
[In the] middle was a person, [with his] crown having halo’s light, [and] chest with [the] ‘卍’ symbol [i.e. Swastika, which represents auspiciousness (吉祥)], pointing [to the] pond’s water, saying, ‘[Of] this eight meritorious virtues’ water, you can drink it.’ Chéngzhī drank [the] water, [which was] sweet [and] filling.
Then returning, also realising [that he] had extraordinary fragrance emitting from [his] pores. [He] then said, ‘This [is with] my [birth in] Pure Land’s condition reached.’
Mount Lú’s all monastics all came [to the] assembly. Chéngzhī towards [the] Buddha’s image burnt incense, repeatedly prostrated, [and in] prayer said, ‘I, with Śākya[muni Buddha’s] bequeathed teachings, thus knew [there] is Amitā[bha] Buddha. [With] this incense first offering [to] Śākya[muni] Thus Come [One], also offering [to] Amitā[bha] Buddha, later offering [to the Wonderful] Dharma [Lotus] Flower [Sūtra’s] assembly, [its] Buddhas [and] Bodhisattva assembly within, up to [the] ten directions’ Buddhas [and] Bodhisattva assemblies, wishing [to] lead all sentient [beings, to] together [be] born [in the] Pure Land.’
[With his] prayer completed, and [to the] assembly saying goodbye, [he] faced [the] West seated upright, [and] collected [his] hands, [as his] breathing stopped. [His] age [was] fifty-nine.
