SUBHUTI'S REQUEST, TWO 


At the time, the elder Subhuti who was in the assembly, rose from his seat, 

时,长老须菩提在大众中即从座起, 

uncovered his right shoulder, 

偏袒右肩, 

knelt upon his right knee, 

右膝著地, 

respectfully joined the palms of his hands and said to the Buddha: 

合掌恭敬而白佛言: 

“It is very rare, O World Honoured One! 

希有!世尊! 

“how well the Tathagata protects and thinks of all Bodhisattvas; how well He instructs all the Bodhisattvas. 

如来善护念诸菩萨,善付嘱诸菩萨。 

“O World Honoured One, 

世尊! 

“when virtuous men or women develop the supreme-enlightenment mind, 

善男子、善女人,发阿耨多罗三藐三菩提心 

“how should their minds abide and how should they be subdued?” 

应云何住?云何降伏其心? 

The Buddha said: 

佛言: 

“Excellent, excellent, Subhuti! 

善哉,善哉。须菩提! 

“As you say, the Tathagata protects, cherishes and instructs Bodhisattvas so well. 

如汝所说:如来善护念诸菩萨,善付嘱诸菩萨, 

“Now listen attentively and I will tell you how the minds of virtuous men and women, 

汝今谛听!当为汝说:善男子、善女人, 

“who develop the supreme enlightenment mind, 

发阿耨多罗三藐三菩提心, 

“should thus abide and be subdued.” 

应如是住,如是降伏其心。 

(Subhuti replied:) “Oh yes, World Honored One, I shall be glad to hear (your instruction).” 

唯然。世尊!愿乐欲闻。
