依法出生分第八 

THEY ARISE FROM DHARMA, EIGHT 

“Subhuti, what do you think? 

须菩提!于意云何? 

“If someone filled the Universe with the seven treasures and gave them all as alms, would his merit be great?” 

若人满三千大千世界七宝以用布施,是人所得福德,宁为多不? 

Subhuti replied: “Very great, World Honoured One. 

须菩提言:甚多,世尊! 

“Why? 

何以故? 

“Because this merit is not the nature of merit, the Tathagata says it is great.” 

是福德即非福德性,是故如来说福德多。 

“Subhuti, if on the other hand, someone received and kept even a four line stanza of this sutra and expounded it to others, his merit would surpass that (of the giver of treasures). 

若复有人,于此经中受持,乃至四句偈等,为他人说,其福胜彼。 

“Why? 

何以故? 

“ (Because), Subhuti, all Buddhas and their Supreme-Enlightenment-Dharma originate from this sutra. 

须菩提!一切诸佛,及诸佛阿耨多罗三藐三菩提法,皆从此经出。 

“Subhuti, the so-called Buddhas and Dharmas are not real Buddhas and Dharmas. 

须菩提!所谓佛、法者,即非佛、法。
