[213] [With] Wholehearted Sincerity [And] Utmost Reverence, Receive [And] Uphold Buddhist Sūtras


Of [the] Great Awakened World-Honoured [One], all [of his] spoken Great Vehicle’s exoteric [and] esoteric honourable sūtras, [are] all [with the] fundamental principle [of] mind-only, [with their] paths corresponding [to] true forms [of reality], passing through [the] three periods yet not changing, entirely [in the] ten realms with all followed.


[For] returning [to the] source [and] recovering [the] fundamental, [they are] as [the] guiding teachers of all Buddhas. [For] pulling out suffering [and] giving bliss, becoming sentient beings’ ‘fathers’ [with] loving-kindness.


If able [to be with] wholehearted sincerity [and] utmost reverence, [with] prostration [and] recitation receiving [and] upholding [them], then [will] oneself [and] others together receive supreme benefits, [with those in the] nether[world and the world of the] living similarly bathing [in] kindness’ light.


Like [a] wish-fulfilling gem, similar [to an] inexhaustible treasury, obtaining [from] them without ceasing, using them without ending, according [to the] mind manifesting measures, all fulfilling that wished [for].
