三期偈
Verses [On] Three Ages

[1] 正法时期中,更多自倾向,正师为正师,正法为正法。

[1] Within [the] Right Dharma Age, more [are] naturally inclined towards, right teachers as right teachers, [and the] Right Dharma as [the] Right Dharma.

[2] 像法时期中,更多自倾向,相似师为师,相似法为法。

[2] Within [the] Dharma-Semblance Age, more [are] naturally inclined towards, similar teachers as [right] teachers, [and] similar Dharma as [the Right] Dharma.

[3] 末法时期中,更多自倾向,邪师为正师,邪法为正法。

[3] Within [the] Dharma-Ending Age, more [are] naturally inclined towards, evil teachers as right teachers, [and] evil Dharma as [the] Right Dharma.

[4] 同时颠倒认,正师为邪师,正法为邪法,违背本师法。

[4] [At the] same time invertedly recognising, right teachers as evil teachers, [and the] Right Dharma as evil Dharma, contradicting [our] Fundamental Teacher [and his] Dharma.

《楞严经》云:「【末法时期】,此诸众生,去佛渐远。邪师说法,如恒河沙。」

[The] Śuraṅgama Sūtra says, ‘[In (the) Dharma-Ending Age], all these sentient beings, [will] leave [the] Buddha [to] gradually [become] distant. Evil teachers [who] speak [the false/evil] Dharma, [will be numerous] like the Ganges River’s sands.’

见佛偈
Verses [On] Seeing Buddha

佛入灭后,五百年间,正法时期,还多得道。

After [the] Buddha entered Parinirvāṇa, within five hundred years, [was the] Right Dharma Age, still [with] many attaining [the] path.

正法过后,一千年间,像法时期,更少得道。

After [the] Right Dharma Age, within one thousand years, [was the] Dharma-Semblance Age, [with] even less attaining [the] path.

像法过后,一万年间,末法时期,无人得道。

After [the] Dharma-Semblance Age, within ten thousand years, [is the] Dharma-Ending Age, without people attaining [the] path.

末法过后,五亿多年,无法时期,无得见佛。

After [the] Dharma-Ending Age, [for] more than five billion years [五亿七十六万岁/五十六亿七千万年], [is a] Dharma-less age, without attaining sight [of any] Buddha.

现已末法,何不求生,正法世界,见佛学佛?

[As] presently [is] already [the] Dharma-Ending [Age], why not seek birth, [in a] Land [with the] Right Dharma, [to see a] Buddha [and] learn [how to become a] Buddha?

行愿品说,极乐国中,亦可会见,本师后佛。

[The] Practices’ [And] Vows’ Chapter say, [that] within [the Pure] Land [Of] Ultimate Bliss, [there] can also [be] seeing [of Maitreya Bodhisattva (弥勒菩萨), the next] Buddha [in this world], after [our] Fundamental Teacher [Śākyamuni Buddha].

《行愿品》云:「得往生极乐世界。到已,即见阿弥陀佛、文殊师利菩萨、普贤菩萨、观自在菩萨、弥勒菩萨等。此诸菩萨,色相端严,功德具足,所共围绕。其人自见生莲华中,蒙佛授记。」

[The] Practices’ [And] Vows’ Chapter says, ‘Attaining rebirth [in the] Land [Of] Ultimate Bliss. Reaching already, immediately seeing Amitā[bha] Buddha, Mañjuśrī Bodhisattva, Universal Virtue Bodhisattva, Contemplating [With] Ease Bodhisattva, Maitreya Bodhisattva [and] others. These all Bodhisattvas, [with] physical forms upright, [and] meritorious virtues complete, [for] them together surround. These persons [will] personally see [themselves] born [from] lotus flowers within, [to] receive [the] Buddha’s predictions [for Buddhahood].’
