南齐扬都僧慧进
[6] Southern Qí [Dynasty’s] Yáng‘s Monastic Huìjìn

慧进,年四十余,愿诵《法华》。执卷病生,乃发愿造百部,以忏业障。

Huìjìn, [at the] age [of] more [than] forty, aspired [to] recite [the Wonderful] Dharma [Lotus] Flower [Sūtra]. [When] upholding [its] scrolls [with] sickness arising, [he] then made [a] vow [to] create [a] hundred volumes [of the sūtra], with [this for] repenting [his] karmic obstacles.

化钱造毕,病亦随愈。愿以造经功德,回向净土。

[With] collecting [of] funds [and] creating [of the sūtra] completed, [his] sickness also accordingly healed. Aspiring with [the] meritorious virtues [from] creating [the] sūtra, [he] dedicated [them for reaching] Pure Land.

忽空中有声云:「汝事已办,愿亦已遂。其生净土,非汝而谁?」

Suddenly, within [the] sky, was [a] voice [that] said, ‘Your practice [is] already done, [and your] Aspiration [will] afterwards [be] fulfilled. [Of] that birth [in] Pure Land, [if it is] not you, then who [will it be]?’

进闻之,曰:「进不敢以冀上品,但下品之下,亦无退转矣。」

Jìn hearing this, said, ‘Jìn [does] not share [to be] with hope [for a] High Grade, only [for a] Low Grade below, also without retrogression.’

永明三年,年八十,无病而卒。

[In] Yǒngmíng’s third year [i.e. 485 C.E.], [at the] age [of] eighty, without sickness, [he] then departed.
