宋明州僧可久
[24] Sòng [Dynasty’s] Míngzhōu’s Monastic Kějiǔ

可久,常诵《法华经》,故号「久法华」。平生修净土业。

[As] Kějiǔ constantly recited [the Wonderful] Dharma [Lotus] Flower [Sūtra], thus [was he] named Jiǔ Fǎhuá [i.e. Long-Lasting Dharma Flower]. Throughout his] life, [he] cultivated Pure Land’s karma.

元祐八年,年八十一,坐化。三日却还,说净土事,与《十六观经》所说一同。

[In] Yuányòu’s eighth year [i.e. 1093 C.E.], aged eighty-one, [he] sat [and] departed. Three days [later] however, [he] returned, speaking [of] Pure Land matter, [which] with [the] Sixteen Contemplations’ Sūtra that said, [were] one [and the] same.

见莲华台皆标合生者姓名:一紫金台标云「大宋成都府广教院熏法华已生其中」,又一金台标云「明州孙十二郎合生其中」,又一金台标云「久法华台」,又一银台标云「明州徐道姑台」。

[He also] saw lotus flower thrones, [with] all indicating [the] surnames [and] names [of] those [to be] closed [for] birth. [There was] one purple-gold throne indicating ‘[Those of] Great Sòng’s Chéngdū Residence, [by] Guǎngjiào [i.e. Vast Teaching] School nurtured [with the] Dharma Flower [Sūtra], already born within here’, also [with] a gold throne indicating ‘[For] Míngzhōu’s Sūn Shí’èr Láng, [to be] closed [for] birth within here’, also [with a] gold throne indicating ‘Jiǔ Fǎhuá’s throne’, [and] also [with] a silver throne indicating ‘Míngzhōu’s Xú Dàogū’s throne’.

语讫,复化去。

[With his] words completed, again departing [to] go.

五年徐道姑亡,异香满室。又十二年,孙十二郎亡,天乐盈空。

Five years [later], Xú Dàogū departed, [with] extraordinary fragrance filling [the] room. Also, twelve years [later], Sūn Shí’èr Láng departed, [with] heavenly music filling [the] sky.
