然后,无尽意菩萨大士从座位起身,偏袒右肩,右膝着地,向世尊合掌行礼,对世尊说道:“世尊啊,为何观自在菩萨大士被称为观自在?”

▍鸠摩罗什 译 

尔时,无尽意菩萨即从座起,偏袒右肩,合掌向佛,而作是言:“世尊!观世音菩萨以何因缘名观世音?”

▍H.Kern 译 

Thereafter the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati rose from his seat, put his upper robe upon one shoulder, stretched his joined hands towards the Lord, and said: For what reason, O Lord, is the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara called Avalokitesvara?

这样说罢,世尊对无尽意菩萨大士说道:“善男子啊,在这世上。百千万那由他众生遭遇痛苦,如果闻听观自在菩萨大士的名号,他们就能摆脱痛苦。善男子啊,众生记取观自在菩萨大士的名号,如果陷入大火,他们就会凭借观自在菩萨大士的威力,摆脱大火。善男子啊,众生如果漂浮河中,只要呼喊观自在菩萨大士,他们就会到达水浅处。善男子啊,如果百千万那由他众生追求金钱、金银、摩尼珠、金刚石、琉璃、贝壳、宝石、珊瑚、玛瑙、翡翠、赤珠和珍珠等财宝,在海上航行,船舶被狂风吹到罗刹岛,在那里,某个众生呼喊观自在菩萨大士,他们就全都会脱离罗刹岛。因此,善男子啊,观自在菩萨大士被称为观自在。”

▍鸠摩罗什 译 

佛告无尽意菩萨:“善男子!若有无量百千万亿众生受诸苦恼,闻是观世音菩萨,一心称名,观世音菩萨即时观其音声,皆得解脱。若有持是观世音菩萨名者,设入大火,火不能烧,由是菩萨威神力故;若为大水所漂,称其名号,即得浅处。若有百千万亿众生,为求金、银、琉璃、砗磲、玛瑙、珊瑚、琥珀、真珠等宝,入于大海,假使黑风吹其船舫,飘堕罗刹鬼国,其中若有乃至一人称观世音菩萨名者,是诸人等皆得解脱罗刹之难,以是因缘,名观世音。”

▍H.Kern 译 

So he asked, and the Lord answered to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati: All the hundred thousands of myriads of kolis of creatures, young man of good family, who in this world are suffering troubles will, if they hear the name of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara, be released from that mass of troubles. Those who shall keep the name of this Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara, young man of good family, will, if they fall into a great mass of fire, be delivered therefrom by virtue of the lustre of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva. In case, young man of good family, creatures, carried off by the current of rivers, should implore the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara, all rivers will afford them a ford. In case,young man of good family, many hundred thousand myriads of kotis of creatures, sailing in a ship on the ocean, should see their bullion, gold, gems, pearls, lapis lazuli, conch shells, stones (?), corals, emeralds, Musâragalvas, read pearls (?), and other goods lost, and the ship by a vehement, untimely gale cast on the island of Giantesses, and if in that ship a single being implores Avalokitesvara, all will be saved from that island of Giantesses. For that reason, young man of good family, the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara is named Avalokitesvara.

If a man given up to capital punishment implores Avalokitesvara, young man of good family, the swords of the executioners shall snap asunder. Further, young man of good family, if the whole triple chiliocosm were teeming with goblins and giants, they would by virtue of the name of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara being pronounced lose the faculty of sight in their wicked designs. If some creature, young man of good family, shall be bound in wooden or iron manacles, chains or fetters, be he guilty or innocent, then those manacles, chains or fetters shall give way as soon as the name of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara is pronounced. Such, young man of good family, is the power of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara.

Such, young man of good family, is the power of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara.

The Lord proceeded: Now, young man of good family, the accumulation of pious merit produced by that young gentleman paying homage to so many Lords Buddhas, and the accumulation of pious merit produced by him who performs were it but a single act of adoration to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara and cherishes his name, are equal. He who adores a number of Lords Buddhas equal to sixty-two times the sands of the river Ganges and cherishes their names, and he who adores the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara and cherishes his name, have an equal accumulation of pious merit; both masses of pious merit are not easy to be destroyed even in hundred thousands of myriads of kotis of Æons. So immense, young man of good family, is the pious merit resulting from cherishing the name of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara.

然后,无尽意菩萨大士对世尊说道:“世尊啊,观自在菩萨大士如何在这个娑婆世界漫游?如何向众生说法?观自在菩萨大士的方便善巧如何?”

▍鸠摩罗什 译 

无尽意菩萨白佛言:“世尊!观世音菩萨云何游此娑婆世界?云何而为众生说法?方便之力,其事云何?”

Again the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati said to the Lord: How, O Lord, is it that the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara frequents this Saha-world? And how does he preach the law? Andwhich is the range of the skilfulness of the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara?

这样说罢,世尊对无尽意菩萨大士说道:“善男子啊,在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以佛身向众生说法。在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以菩萨身向众生说法。在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以缘觉身向众生说法。在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以声闻身向众生说法。在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以梵天身向众生说法。在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以帝释天身向众生说法。在一些世界,观自在菩萨大士以健达缚身向众生说法。以药叉身向受药叉教化的众生说法。以自在天身向受自在天教化的众生说法,以大自在天身向受大自在天教化的众生说法。以转轮王身向受转轮王教化的众生说法。以毕舍遮身向受毕舍遮教化的众生说法。以毗沙门王身向受毗沙门王教化的众生说法。以统帅身向受统帅教化的众生说法。以婆罗门身向受婆罗门教化的众生说法。以金刚手身向受金刚手教化的众生说法。因此,善男子啊,观自在菩萨大士具有这样不可思议的功德。你们要侍奉观自在菩萨大士。善男子啊,这位观自在菩萨大士赐予恐惧的众生无畏。因此,他在娑婆世界被称为赐予无畏者。”

▍鸠摩罗什 译 

佛告无尽意菩萨:“善男子!若有国土众生应以佛身得度者,观世音菩萨即现佛身而为说法;应以辟支佛身得度者,即现辟支佛身而为说法;应以声闻身得度者,即现声闻身而为说法;应以梵王身得度者,即现梵王身而为说法;应以帝释身得度者,即现帝释身而为说法;应以自在天身得度者,即现自在天身而为说法;应以大自在天身得度者,即现大自在天身而为说法;应以天大将军身得度者,即现天大将军身而为说法;应以毗沙门身得度者,即现毗沙门身而为说法;应以小王身得度者,即现小王身而为说法;应以长者身得度者,即现长者身而为说法;应以居士身得度者,即现居士身而为说法;应以宰官身得度者,即现宰官身而为说法;应以婆罗门身得度者,即现婆罗门身而为说法;应以比丘、比丘尼、优婆塞、优婆夷身得度者,即现比丘、比丘尼、优婆塞、优婆夷身而为说法;应以长者、居士、宰官、婆罗门妇女身得度者,即现妇女身而为说法;应以童男、童女身得度者,即现童男、童女身而为说法,应以天、龙、夜叉、乾闼婆、阿修罗、迦楼罗、紧那罗、摩睺罗伽、人非人等身得度者,即皆现之而为说法;应以执金刚神得度者,即现执金刚神而为说法。无尽意!是观世音菩萨成就如是功德,以种种形,游诸国土,度脱众生,是故汝等应当一心供养观世音菩萨。是观世音菩萨摩诃萨于怖畏急难之中,能施无畏,是故,此娑婆世界皆号之为施无畏者。”

So asked, the Lord replied to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati: In some worlds, young man of good family, the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara preaches the law to creatures in the shape of a Buddha; in others he does so in the shape of a Bodhisattva. To some beings he shows the law in the shape of a Pratyekabuddha; to others he does so in the shape of a disciple; to others again under that of Brahma, Indra, or a Gandharva. To those who are to be converted by a goblin, he preaches the law assuming the shape of a goblin; to those who are to be converted by Isvara, he preaches the law in the shape of isvara; to those who are to be converted by Mahesvara, he preaches assuming the shape of Mahesvara. To those who are to be converted by a Kakravartin [This term is ambiguous; it means both ‘the mover of the wheel’, i.e. Vishnu, and ‘an emperor’], he shows the law after assuming the shape of a Kakravartin; to those who are to be converted by an imp, he shows the law under the shape of an imp; to those who are to be converted by Kubera, he shows the law by appearing in the shape of Kubera; to those who are to be converted by Senâpati [Ambiguous; the word denotes both ‘the commander-in-chief of the army of the gods, Skanda,’ and ‘a commander-in-chief in general’], he preaches in the shape of Senapati ; to those who are to be converted by assuming a Brâhman [the Brâhman may be Brihaspati] , he preaches in the shape of a Brâhman; to those who are to be converted by Vagrapâni [Vagrapâni is the name of one of the Dhyânibuddhas, and of certain geniuses, and an ephitet of Indra] , he preaches in the shape of Vagrapâni [The function of Avalokitesvara, as it appears from these passages, agree with those of Gadgadasvara mentioned in the foregoing chapter]. With such inconceivable qualities, young man of good family, is the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara endowed. Therefore then, young man of good family, honour the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara. The Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara, young man of good family, affords safety to those who are in anxiety. On that account one calls him in this Saha-world Abhayandada (i. e. Giver of Safety).

然后,无尽意菩萨大士对世尊说道:“世尊啊,我们要给观自在菩萨大士法供养,法礼物。”世尊说道:“善男子啊,你认为现在是时机,就给吧。”于是,无尽意菩萨大士从自己脖颈取下价值十万的珍珠项链,作为法礼物,献给观自在菩萨大士:“贤士啊,请接受我给你的这个法礼物。”而他不接受。于是,无尽意菩萨大士对观自在菩萨大士说道:“善男子啊,请垂怜我们,接受这个珍珠项链吧!”然后,观自在菩萨大士垂怜无尽意菩萨大士,垂怜这些四众和这些天神、蛇、药叉、健达缚、阿修罗、迦楼罗、紧那罗、大蛇、人和非人,接受无尽意菩萨大士献给他的这个珍珠项链。接受后,他将这个珍珠项链分成两份,一份献给世尊释迦牟尼,一份献给宝塔中的世尊多宝如来、阿罗汉、正等觉。“善男子啊,观自在菩萨大士漫游娑婆世界,有这样的神通。”

▍H.Kern 译 

Further, the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati said to the Lord: Shall we give a gift of piety, a decoration of piety, O Lord, to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara? The Lord replied: Do so, if thou thinkest it opportune. Then the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati took from his neck a pearl necklace, worth a hundred thousand (gold pieces), and presented it to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara as a decoration of piety, with the words: Receive from me this decoration of piety, good man. But he would not accept it. Then the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati said to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara: Out of compassion to us, young man of good family, accept this pearl necklace. Then the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara accepted the pearl necklace from the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati, out of compassion to the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Akshayamati and the four classes, and out of compassion to the gods, Nâgas, goblins, Gandharvas demons, Garudas, Kinnaras, great serpents, men: and beings not human. Thereafter he divided (the necklace) into two parts, and offered one part to the Lord Sakyamuni, and the other to the jewel Stûpa of the Lord Prabhûtaratna, the Tathagata, &c., who had become completely extinct.With such a faculty of transformation, young man of good family, the Bodhisattva Mahâsattva Avalokitesvara is moving in this Saha-world.
