THE MERIT AND VIRTUE GAINED FROM UPHOLDING THIS SUTRA, FIFTEEN
“Subhuti, if (on the one hand) a virtuous man or woman sacrifices in the practice of charity (dana), as many lives as the sand-grains of the Ganges in the morning, at midday and again in the evening, and continues so doing throughout numberless aeons;
“and if (on the other hand) a person after listening to this sutra believes in his own mind without (further) contradiction, the latter's merit will surpass that of the former.
“How much more so if this sutra is written, received, held, read, recited and expounded to others!
“Subhuti, to sum up, the merits resulting from this sutra are inconceivable, inestimable and without limit.
“The Tathagata expounds it to those initiated into the Mahayana and the Supreme Yana.
“If they are able to receive, hold (in mind), read and recite it and expound it widely to others,
“the Tathagata will know and will see that they will achieve inexpressible and inconceivable merits that are without measure or limit.
“They will bear (responsibility for) the Tathagata's Supreme Enlightenment (Anuttara-samyak-sambodhi.)
“Why? Because, Subhuti,
“those who take delight in the Hinayana and hold the view of an ego, a personality, a being and a life,
“cannot listen to, receive, hold (in mind), read and recite this sutra and explain it to others.
“Subhuti, wheresoever this sutra may be found,
“all worlds of devas, men and asuras should make offerings,
“for you should know that such a place is just a stupa which should be revered, worshipped and circumambulated, with offerings of flowers and incense.
