A noble [teaching]. List of teachings that proclaim the qualities of the land of the Enlightened Tathagata

    I give praise to all the Enlightened Ones and to the Tathagata!
    That's what I heard once.
    The Blessed One was sitting on the lion throne of Padmagarbha, decorated with precious vajras, in Bodhimand, Dharmavihara, a difficult country to compare [Together with him] was a great good assembly of bodhisattvas, bodhisattvas-mahasattvas, [in number] corresponding to grains of sand from hundreds of thousands of hundreds of thousands of millions of hundreds of thousands of tens of countries of the Enlightened One.
    At that time, there was a bodhisattva-mahasattva Prabha-acintyaraja, [who was] in this assembly of the mandala of the entourage of bodhisattvas. Then, impelled by the power of the Enlightened bodhisattva-mahasattva Prabha-acintyaraja, he rose from his seat and said to the entire assembly of bodhisattvas:
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Sahaloka, the sphere of the universe — one day of Sukhavati, the sphere of the universe, the land of the Blessed One, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Amitabha!
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Sukhavati, the sphere of the universe — one day of Abhirati, the sphere of the universe, the land of the Blessed One, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Akshobhya!
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Abhirati, the realms of the universe — one day of Kashaya-dhwaja, the realms of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Vajragarbha-prajita!
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Kashaya-dhvaji, the realms of the universe — one day of Avinivartin-cakraghosha, the realms of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Su-artha-vinishchaya-padma-suparipurna-kaya!
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Avinivartin-cakraghoshi, the realms of the universe-one day Rajas-tas, the realms of the universe,the land of the Blessed One, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Dharma-dhwaja!

    O sons of the Victorious One! This world age of Rajasthas, the realms of the universe - one day Deepayata, the realms of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Simha!
    O sons of the Victorious! This world epoch of Dipata, the realm of the universe — one day of Suprabha, the realm of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Vairocana!
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Suprabha, the realms of the universe — one day of Dukhsamatikrama, the realms of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Dharma-kirana-suparipurna-kaya!
    O sons of the Victorious One! This world epoch of Dukhsamatikrama, the realms of the universe — one day of Vibhushita, the realms of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Abhijna-sarva-mati-kirana-raja!
    O sons of the Victorious! This world epoch of Vibhushita, the realm of the universe — one day of Adarsha-mandala-ghosha, the realm of the universe, the land of the Blessed, the Tathagata, the Enlightened Chandramanas!
    O sons of the Victorious One! Through this method of entering into the enumeration and analysis of the sphere of the universe- [will be revealed] one day of Padmashri, the sphere of the universe, the special [place] of practice, the place of practice of the Bodhisattva Samantabhadra in the country of the Enlightened Sribhadra, the Blessed One, the Tathagata, the Arhat, the truly perfect Enlightened One, which exceeds the number of grains of sand of all one hundred and ten thousand countries of the Enlightened Ones!

    O sons of the Victorious One! If any son or daughter of the [noble] family adheres to this enumeration of teachings proclaiming the qualities of the land of the Enlightened Tathagata, keeps [in mind], reads, understands everything, explains others perfectly in a vast way, then when death comes, they will be before the Blessed, Enlightened Ones from the immeasurable ocean of Enlightened countries, boundlessly [abiding] in the ten directions! They will remember the birth up to the unsurpassed, truly perfect enlightenment, the true Enlightened One!

    The Bodhisattva-mahasattva Prabha-acintyaraja rejoiced and proclaimed this, which was granted by the Tathagata, the arhat, the truly perfect Enlightened One. All the circles-mandalas of the entourage of bodhisattvas-mahasattvas praised the words of the bodhisattva-mahasattva Prabha-acintyaraja.
    Thus ends the noble enumeration of the teachings proclaiming the qualities of the countries of the Enlightened Tathagatas.
