[84] Bodhisattvas Are Able To, According To Situations, With Sentient And Non-Sentient Forms Appear With Their Bodies 菩萨能随机以有情无情相现身


[It] should [be] known [that] Bodhisattvas [are] without [fixed] minds, with [the] minds of sentient beings as minds. Bodhisattva [are] without realms, with [the] realms of sentient beings as realms. Thus is there, [once] having connection, then [with] penetration, without planning then responding.


[The] fundamental essence of [those] good sentient beings’ minds, with [the] minds [of] Bodhisattvas, [are] closely connected [with] one another. Therefore, all [who] meet extremely great dangers [and] difficulties, [with the] raising [of a] thought, [will] immediately obtain connection [with] response.


Also, Bodhisattvas appearing [with their] bodies, [do] not only appear [with] sentient [beings’] bodies, thus [with] mountains, rivers, trees, bridges, rafts, terraces, houses, walls [and] villages [too], also according [to] situations appearing.


[They will] definitely cause those arriving [at] dangerous places, [to] again ascend [to] open thoroughfare, [those] without hiding places, [to] attain great coverage. [With] all kinds [of] salvation [and] protection, [that are] difficult [to] completely preach.
