I heard that: At one time the Buddha was staying at the Xa-che,
in the garden of Thai Prince Ky-da and Mr Grant-poison. Now, the mass includes countless Bodhisattvas, heaven, who are sitting around the Buddha. The Buddha preached, the audience unanimously listened.
At that time, he A-nan because of the beings that the Buddha said:
White World Religion! There are countless sentient beings in the world, in terms of humanity, there are beautiful people and bad guys; strong, weak people; the rich and the poor; miserable people, happy people; a man, a coward; Mind, language difference. There are those who have lived to the age of one hundred and not yet dead, the dead thirty; the fifteen-year-old has lost his life, the one who died from the fetus. There are good generals who are good and poor, and have a bad general and leave their wealth. Some people are adamant but their status is low, there are those who are weak but in a noble position.
There are poor people who live long,
have rich people and die soon. Some people do good but have a disaster, and those who do evil can benefit. There are white people whose eyes are cunning and have thin black people whose eyes are gentle. They’re people who are short and full of intentions,
who are tall and who are commanded. There is a crowded descendant, some are alone. Some people are far away from the wandering hometown of hunger and cold,
and, some are allowed to go to the palace to supply excess rice.
There are small people who are poor and old and rich.
Some people are actually innocent but they are in jail. There is a gentle and loving father discussing the sutras. also, brothers fighting against each other, arguing, causing trouble. There”re people who settle in houses with adequate facilities, and there are nomadic people who cannot float everywhere. There are people on trees like birds, sleeping in caves like deer, living like animals. Some people eat fur in holes, do not know the word. Someone sitting without enjoying the blessing and newspaper, there are those who are wandering as guests without a home. There are smart people, stupid fool.
Some people have to trade in order to have money, some do not do it, but their own wealth. There are rich people who are passionate about life, and poor people like to give alms. Some people talk about glass, some people give the original words. Someone is revered, someone is alienated. Some people do good to protect sentient beings, there are those who don’t kill. There are people who are widely minded by many close people, who are often neglected by people. There are brothers who often hate each other. Some people like to listen to the sutra, some listen to the sutra again. There are disrespectful brute people, there are people who love to worship.
A threshold of the World Religion preaching wide of cause and effect, the public heard will conscientiously practice well.
The Buddha told Ananda: As he asked, this place of life everyone reported was not the same, because the previous life they used a different mentality, so when there were thousands of different things in life:

hen, Mr A-nan Bach Buddha: As the Buddha taught, the sin of human beings is really deep. So, what do people need to do to get merit?
The Buddha said: Those who come to the temple have two kinds of mindfulness, one is kusala citta, and two are evil.
What is mindfulness?
People who come to the temple if they see the Buddha then worship, see Sang, respectfully, ask the meaning of the sutra, receive the precepts, repent, abandon the material to serve the Three Jewels, and keep the Dhamma without regret. Such a person takes one step to come to goodness, the next life is retribution like a ca-ca tree. This is called the supreme healer.
What is an evil mind?
People come to the temple next to them Tang to ask for this object, borrow something; or find things or their bad things Increase to destroy. Or use their food Tang is not ashamed, or take the leftovers, vegetables, and hidden food to take home.
Such people, damaging to hell hot iron tablets, boiling water, charcoal kilns, mountain blades, forest swords. This is, called “the ultimate evil person.”
Buddha told A-nan: Please teach the disciples of my future life, to be careful with the Three Jewels, not to make these mistakes, wholeheartedly devote to devotion, not to mind. If I listen to My words, when the Maitreya emerges, it will definitely be transformed…
