大乘正宗分第三 

THE ORTHODOX DOCTRINE OF THE GREAT VEHICLE, THREE 


The Buddha said: “Subhuti, 

佛告须菩提: 

“all Bodhisattvas and Mahasattvas should subdue their minds as follows: 

诸菩萨摩诃萨应如是降伏其心! 

“All living beings born from eggs, wombs, humidity or by transformation 

所有一切众生之类:若卵生、若胎生、若湿生、 若化生; 

“with or without form, 

若有色、若无色; 

“either thoughtful or thoughtless, 

若有想、若无想、 

“and neither thoughtful nor thoughtless 

若非有想非无想, 

“are all led by me to the final nirvana for the extinction of reincarnation 

我皆令入无余涅槃而灭度之。 

“Although immeasurable, uncountable and unlimitable numbers of living beings are thus led to (the final nirvana for) the extinction of reincarnation, 

如是灭度无量无数无边众生, 

“it is true that not a living being is led there. 

实无众生得灭度者。 

“Why so, Subhuti? 

何以故? 须菩提! 

“(Because) if a Bodhisattva (still) clings to the false notion (laksana) of an ego, a personality, a being and a life, he is not ( a true) Bodhisattva. 

若菩萨有我相、人相、众生相、寿者相,即非菩萨。
