So that they might fully understand this, the Blessed One, while still alive, often instructed his listeners in this way;
世尊住世時,爲使聽衆詳解這[五蘊],常如是教誨弟子,

Evaṃ bhāgā ca panassa bhagavato sāvakesu anusāsanī,

(UPEKKHĀ — EQUANIMITY)


Sabbe sattā kammassakā kamma-dāyādā kamma-yonī kamma-bandhū kamma-paṭisaraṇā.
All living beings are the owners of their actions, heir to their actions, born of their actions, related through their actions, and live dependent on their actions.
一切衆生是自己業的主人、業的繼承人、由業而生、因業相聯、依業而活。

Yaṃ kammaṃ karissanti kalyāṇaṃ vā pāpakaṃ vā tassa dāyādā bhavissanti.
Whatever they do, for good or for evil, to that will they fall heir. 無論所作,爲善爲惡,他們必自承擔。

springing from the good I have done. 願一切衆生分享我行善的福德。

The Discourse on Good Fortune



[Evam-me sutaṃ,] Ekaṃ samayaṃ Bhagavā, Sāvatthiyaṃ viharati, Jetavane Anāthapiṇḍikassa, ārāme.
I have heard that at one time the Blessed One was staying in Savatthi at Jeta's Grove, Anathapindika's monastery.
我聽說,有一次世尊住在舍衛城祇树給孤獨精舍。

Atha kho ańńatarā devatā, abhikkantāya rattiyā abhikkanta-vaṇṇā kevala-kappaṃ Jetavanaṃ obhāsetvā,
yena Bhagavā ten'upasaṅkami.
Then a certain devata, in the far extreme of the night, her extreme radiance lighting up the entirety of Jeta's Grove, approached the Blessed One.
有一位天神,在深夜時分,身放強光、遍照祇树,走近世尊。

Upasaṅkamitvā Bhagavantaṃ abhivādetvā ekamantaṃ aṭṭhāsi.
On approaching, having bowed down to the Blessed One, she stood to one side.
走近跟前,向世尊頂禮後,她立於一旁。

Ekam-antaṃ ṭhitā kho sā devatā Bhagavantaṃ gāthāya ajjhabhāsi.
As she was standing there, she addressed a verse to the Blessed One.
立於一旁後,她對世尊說了一段偈:

"Bahū devā manussā ca
maṅgalāni acintayuṃ
Ākaṅkhamānā sotthānaṃ

"Many devas & humans beings give thought to good fortune,

Saggesu vā yaṃ ratanaṃ paṇītaṃ
Na no samaṃ atthi tathāgatena.
Whatever wealth in this world or the next,
Whatever exquisite treasure in the heavens,
Is not, for us, equal to the Tathagata.
此界他界的一切財富,天界的一切精妙珍寶,
對我們來說,無一可比如來之寶。

Idam-pi buddhe ratanaṃ paṇītaṃ
Etena saccena suvatthi hotu.

This, too, is an exquisite treasure in the Buddha.
By this truth may there be well-being.
這也是佛陀的精妙寶藏。
以此真言,願你有安甯。

Khayaṃ virāgaṃ amataṃ paṇītaṃ
Yad-ajjhagā sakyamunī samāhito
Na tena dhammena sam'atthi kińci.

The exquisite Deathless — dispassion, ending —
Discovered by the Sakyan Sage while in concentration:
There is nothing equal to that Dhamma.

那樣的真法無與匹比。

Samādhim-ānantarik'ańńam-āhu
Samādhinā tena samo na vijjati.

What the excellent Awakened One extolled as pure
And called the concentration of unmediated knowing:
No equal to that concentration can be found.
至尊之佛,贊歎定力的清淨,稱它爲無間之智:
那樣的正定無以匹比。

Idam-pi dhamme ratanaṃ paṇītaṃ
Etena saccena suvatthi hotu.

This, too, is an exquisite treasure in the Dhamma.

Cattāri etāni yugāni honti

Etesu dinnāni mahapphalāni.

The eight persons — the four pairs —
praised by those at peace:
They, disciples of the One Well-Gone, deserve offerings.
What is given to them bears great fruit.
八輩與四雙,得甯靜者的贊揚:
他們——善逝者的聲聞弟子——值得供養。佈施他们必有大果報。

Apply themselves to Gotama's message,

證得目標、進入涅槃,安享解脫之樂。

Ended the old, there is no new taking birth.
Dispassioned their minds toward further becoming,
They, with no seed, no desire for growth,
The wise, they go out like this flame.
舊業已盡,不再重生。心有離欲,不再緣起。
無再生之種,無成長之欲,智者入滅,譬如這火焰的止息。

Idam-pi saṅghe ratanaṃ paṇītaṃ
Etena saccena suvatthi hotu.

This, too, is an exquisite treasure in the Sangha.
By this truth may there be well-being.
