石晋凤翔僧志通
[22] Shíjìn’s Fèngxiáng Monastic Zhìtōng

志通,见智者大师净土仪式,不胜欣抃。

Zhìtōng saw Great Master Zhìzhě’s Pure Land ceremony, [he was] extremely happy [and] joyful.

不向西唾,不背西坐,专心修进。

Not towards [the] West spitting, not willing [to have his] back [to the] West sitting, [he] focused [on] cultivating diligently.

后见白鹤、孔雀成行列西下,又见莲华光相开合于前。

Later, [he] saw [a] white crane [and] peacock, forming [a] line, [from the] West descending, also seeing [a] lotus flower’s lights’ form, blossoming [and] closing before [him].

通云:「白鹤、孔雀,净土境也;莲华光相,托生处也。净土现矣。」

Tōng said, ‘[The] white crane [and] peacock [are from] Pure Land’s realm. [The] lotus flower’s lights’ form, [is the] place [where I will be] conceived [for] birth. [The] Pure Land [has] appeared.’

乃起礼佛,对佛而终。火化时,五色祥云环覆火上。

Then rising [to] prostrate [to the] Buddha, facing [the] Buddha, [he] then departed. When cremating, five-coloured auspicious clouds circled [and] covered [the] fire above.
