Buddhism Day by Day: The Good Fortune you Gain Thereby is Immeasurable & Boundless
“You have been able to accept, uphold, read, recite and ponder this sutra and to preach to for others. The good fortune you gain thereby is immeasurable and boundless. It cannot be burned by fire or washed away with water. Your benefits are such that a thousand Buddhas speaking all together could never finish describing them. Now you have been able to destroy all devils and thieves, to annihilate the army of both and death, and all others who bore you enmity or malice have likewise been wiped out.
Good man, a hundred, a thousand Buddhas will employ their transcendental powers to join in guarding and protecting you. Among the heavenly and human beings all the worlds, there will be no one like you.”
