It is difficult to keep this sutra. I shall be glad to see anyone keeping it even for a moment. So will all the other Buddhas. Such a person will be praised by all the Buddhas. This will be a person of valor; one of endeavor, who should be considered to have already observed the precepts and practiced the dhuta. Such a one will quickly attain the unsurpassed enlightenment of the Buddha. Anyone who reads and recites this sutra in the future is a true child of mine and shall be considered to live on the stage of purity and good. Anyone, after my extinction, who understands the meaning of this sutra will be the eyes of the worlds celestial and mundane. Anyone who expounds this sutra even for a moment in this dreadful world should be honored with offerings by all heavenly and earthly beings.
