[Rewards Of (The) Ten Good Karmas]


Dragon King, [you] should know [that] Bodhisattvas have one Dharma [teaching, that is] able [to] sever all evil paths’ suffering. What is [this] one? [It is] called, in day [and] night, constantly [being] mindful, contemplating [and] observing good dharmas, [to] lead all good dharmas, [from] thought [to] thought, [to] increase [and] grow, not allowing [one] fine hair’s part [of] non-good [to be in] between mixed. [This] is then able [to] lead all evils [to be] forever severed, [and] good dharmas [to be] fulfilled, constantly attaining getting close [to] all Buddhas, Bodhisattvas and others [in] noble assemblies.

言善法者,谓人天身、声闻菩提、独觉菩提、无上菩提,皆依此法以为根本而得成就,故名善法。此法即是十善业道。何等为十?谓能 [1] 永离杀生、[2] 偷盗、[3] 邪行、[4] 妄语、[5] 两舌、[6] 恶口、[7] 绮语、[8] 贪欲、[9] 瞋恚、[10] 邪见。

Speaking [of] those good dharmas, [those] called human [and] heavenly [beings’], bodies, Voice-Hearers’ Bodhi, Lone Awakeners’ Bodhi, [and] Unsurpassable Bodhi, all rely [on] this Dharma [teaching], with [it] as root, then attaining accomplishment, thus named [as] good dharmas. This Dharma [teaching] is thus [the] Ten Good Karmas’ path. What are [the] ten? [They are] called [being] able [to] [1] forever depart [from] killing lives, [2] stealing, [3] sexual misconduct, [4] false speech, [5] double-tongued [speech], [6] harsh speech, [7] frivolous speech, [8] greedy desires, [9] anger [and] [10] evil views.
