Staying at Savatthi. "Monks, there once was a time when the Dasarahas had a large drum called 'Summoner.' Whenever Summoner was split, the Dasarahas inserted another peg in it, until the time came when Summoner's original wooden body had disappeared and only a conglomeration of pegs remained. [1]

於舍衛城。比丘們,曾幾何時,陀舍羅诃人有一面名爲召集者'的大鼓。每當召集者'出現裂紋時,陀舍羅诃人便另以一釘銷補合,至終,召集者'原先的木質鼓身已失,只剩一堆釘銷。[1]

"In the same way, in the course of the future there will be monks who won't listen when discourses that are words of the Tathagata deep, deep in their meaning, transcendent, connected with emptiness are being recited. They won't lend ear, won't set their hearts on knowing them, won't regard these teachings as worth grasping or mastering. But they will listen when discourses that are literary works the works of poets, elegant in sound, elegant in rhetoric, the work of outsiders, words of disciples are recited. They will lend ear and set their hearts on knowing them. They will regard these teachings as worth grasping & mastering.

同樣地,未來時期,當如來所說的諸經深邃、出世、相應空性被持誦時,將會有比丘不願聽。他們不願傾聽、不用心理解、不以此教言值得領悟值得把握。然而,當文學造著的諸經詩人聲雅辭美之作、外道之說、弟子之言被持誦時,他們卻願意聽。他們願意傾聽、用心理解、以此教言值得領悟值得把握。

"In this way the disappearance of the discourses that are words of the Tathagata deep, deep in their meaning, transcendent, connected with emptiness will come about.

 

如來所說的諸經深邃、出世、相應空性將以此種方式消失。

"Thus you should train yourselves: 'We will listen when discourses that are words of the Tathagata deep, deep in their meaning, transcendent, connected with emptiness are being recited. We will lend ear, will set our hearts on knowing them, will regard these teachings as worth grasping & mastering.' That's how you should train yourselves."

因此,你們應當訓練自己:當如來所說的諸經深邃、出世、相應空性被持誦時,我們要聽。我們要傾聽、用心理解、以此教言值得領悟值得把握。'你們應當如此訓練自己。

[原注1]注疏中說,該鼓原先十二由旬之外尚可聽,最終一重帷幕之隔 不可聞[1由旬爲公牛挂轭行走一日之旅程]。
