应化非真分第三十二 

RESPONSES AND TRANSFORMATIONS ARE UNREAL, THIRTY-TWO 

“Subhuti, if on the one hand, someone gave away in alms (dana) the seven treasures inquantities sufficient to fill all the worlds in uncount-able aeons, 

须菩提!若有人以满无量阿僧祇世界七宝持用布施, 

“and if on the other hand, a virtuous man or woman developed the Bodhi-mind, 

若有善男子、善女人,发菩萨心者, 

“and received, held (in mind), read and recited even a four-line stanza of this sutra and expounded it to others, 

持于此经,乃至四句偈等,受持读诵,为人演说, 

“the latter's merit would surpass that of the former. 

其福胜彼。 

“In what manner should it be taught to others? By teaching it without attachment to form with the immutability of the absolute. 

云何为人演说,不取于相,如如不动。 

“Why is it? 

何以故? 

“Because: All phenomena are like a dream, an illusion, a bubble and a shadow, Like dew and lightning. Thus should you meditate upon them.” 

一切有为法 如梦幻泡影  如露亦如电 应作如是观 

When the Buddha had finished expounding this sutra, 

佛说是经已, 

the elder Subhuti, together with bhiksus, bhiksunis, upasakas, upasikas, 

长老须菩提及诸比丘、比丘尼、优婆塞、优婆夷、 

and all the worlds of devas, men and asuras who had listened to His teaching, were filled with joy and believed received and observed it. 

一切世间、天、人、阿修罗,闻佛所说,皆大欢喜,信受奉行。
