宋会稽金太公
[25] Sòng [Dynasty’s] Kuàijī’s Jīn Tàigōng

太公名奭,网鱼为业。

Tàigōng’s name [was] Shì, [with] catching fish as livelihood.

一日改业,持阿弥陀佛日万声,蔬素修行,不曾暂辍。

One day, [he] changed [his] livelihood, [and] upheld Āmítuófó[‘s name for] ten thousand recitations daily, [with] veg[etari]anism cultivating practice, not once temporarily stopping.

后无疾告家人云:「我见阿弥陀佛与观音、势至在门前,我今归净土也。」

Later without sickness, [he] told [his] family members, ‘[As] I see Amitā[bha] Buddha, Contemplator [Of] Sounds [Bodhisattva] and Power Arrived [Bodhisattva] before [the] door, I [will] now return [to the] Pure Land.’

次日又云:「我已见金莲华来迎我矣。」

[The] next day, also saying, ‘I [have] already seen [a] golden lotus flower come [to] welcome me.’

索香炉,安坐捏印而化。

Asking [for an] incense censer, [he] peacefully sat, [with his] fingers forming [a] mudrā, [he] then departed.

乡村远近闻音乐,异香终日不散。时政和六年。

[In the] village, [those from] far [and] near heard music, [and smelled] extraordinary fragrance, [which to the] end [of the] day [did] not disperse. [It was] then Zhènghé’s sixth year [i.e. 1116 C.E.].
