2018年12月3日,今天接關平菩薩旨意下到閻王殿。閻王殿前三位閻王正在等候弟子,弟子向閻王合十請安就像往常立在一旁聽審。殿前跪著兩個被燒得焦黑的靈體,都是從銅床地獄調來的罪靈。

On the 3rd of December 2018, I received the orders of Guanping Bodhisattva to descend to Yama’s court. In court, three different Yamas waited for me, and I paid my respects to each of them. Then, as usual, I stood at the side to listen to the hearing. Kneeling before them were two sinned spirits that looked burnt and black, they were transferred there from the hell of iron beds.


XX國閻王(閻王A)指向在後面渾身發抖的罪靈,說:“死前為高官子弟,淫亂放蕩,和多少歡場女子及影視明星縱欲,喝酒、抽菸、吸毒、跑淫窟,根本沒有半點為人父母官的樣子。死後還以為你在人間,可以任意在本王面前撒潑,無理取鬧。一切眾生,不管有名無名,有富無富,有權無權,都是根據天地律法懲戒。現在自己說一說在銅床地獄的懲戒,好讓童子回陽世書寫以警後世之人。有莫大福氣能為父母官就要好好為民請命,倘若為非作歹,死後一樣下地獄懲戒。在世之人倘若惡口,無中生有,誹謗有德行之父母官,切記,也是一大口業。地府也會一一記帳,依口業大小懲處。”

Yama A (who governs country A) pointed at the quivering sinned spirit at the back and said, “When you were alive, you were a princeling, you were promiscuous and had sexual relationships with many women from clubs and also famous artists, you drank alcohol and smoked heavily, you took drugs and went to brothels, and never acted like an upright governmental official. After death, you still behaved as if you were in the human realm, and willfully threw a tantrum in front of me and acted unreasonably. All sentient beings, whether they’re famous or not, rich or not, powerful or not, they all follow the same laws of heaven and earth and are rewarded and punished accordingly. Now could you give a testimony of your punishment in the hell of iron beds, so that our guest could write it out and warn others in the human realm? You were endowed with great worldly blessings, and as such, you became a governmental official, and you should have served your citizens dutifully. If you committed unwholesome deeds and broke the law, you would be punished in hell like all the others. If anybody in the living realm commits harsh speech, lie or slander against virtuous governmental officials, keep in mind that it’s considered a severe deed of verbal misconduct. The courts will keep track of it all, and sentence different punishments according to the severity of the deeds of verbal misconduct.”


罪靈A:“我死後被鬼差拉著走,鬼差力氣很大,我生前也是一個粗壯的男子,卻完全不敵鬼差的力氣。走在黑暗的小路上,四周很安靜,不久就聽到很多淒涼的哭喊聲,我茫然地跟著走到了一個很古老高大的城門前。門前的鬼差打開門強行拖我進去,進去才知道這個是銅床地獄,專門懲戒淫亂的罪靈。

Sinned spirit A said, “After I died, I was taken away by the executioners. Their strength was great, when I was alive, I was a strong man, but I wasn’t even able to resist them. I went along a shadowy path, and the surrounding was eerily quiet. Not long after, I heard many woeful cries coming from the distance. I then bewilderingly followed them to an ancient and tall city gate. Another executioner who was waiting at the front of the gate opened it and dragged me through. When I entered, I realised that it was the hell of iron beds, which was specialised at punishing promiscuous sinned spirits.


“被帶到一個鐵釘板前,不能稱為床是因為沒有床褥,全部是粗大的鐵針鋪滿在一張板上。鐵釘板前有一個牌子寫著我的名字、國家和地方名。我死活不肯躺在鐵釘板上,一個脾氣火爆的鬼差用蠻力把我按在鐵釘板上躺著,疼得我哭爹叫娘,上百隻鐵針插入我的後背。我生前嬌生慣養,哪吃過這種苦,瞬間生不如死,叫天叫地。我以為這就是懲罰,躺了不知多少時間,腦海中忽然起各種淫亂念想,都是我未死之前的邪淫場景。猛然間,鐵床下火光竄起,後背的鐵針燒得通紅滾燙,我哭喊大叫,恨不得意識昏死過去不要再受這種罪,可是根本不能掙脫這鐵床,鐵針插入我後背幾寸深,現在又放火燒。後悔啊!若是早知地獄刑罰真實存在,我一定不與那些女子做淫蕩之事。地獄真的是很苦!”(罪靈哭泣聲不斷)

When I was taken to an iron bed, I thought that it shouldn’t be considered a bed since there were no mattresses. It was a solid iron bed with many large and sharp spikes protruding out of the surface. In front of the bed was a label that had my name, nationality and place of birth written on it. I struggled with all my might as I was unwilling to lay on top of the iron bed. Then an ill-tempered executioner forcefully pressed me on top of the iron bed, and the excruciating pain made me cry. In an instant, hundreds of iron spikes stabbed straight into my back. I was spoiled when I was alive; how could I endure this hardship? I then cried and wailed. I thought that was the punishment, but after some time while I was lying down, many distracting sexual thoughts appeared in my head, and I saw the scenes of my promiscuous acts. Suddenly a blaze ignited under the bed, and the spikes that were inserted into my back became red hot. I cried loudly and wished badly that I could just become unconscious permanently so that I wouldn’t have to suffer from this kind of punishment, I was unable to move a muscle on the iron bed, and the spikes were plunged inches deep inside my flesh and were burning red hot. I regret it completely! If I knew that hell existed, I would not act promiscuously with other women. Hell really is a place of extreme suffering!” (The sinned spirit cried continuously.)


XX國閻王(閻王B)指向前面一些的男罪靈:“你本為男子,為何吸毒?男男淫亂?而且是與數位男子,所作所為簡直是不堪入目。你可知男男亂交、女女亂交是顛倒陽間陰陽,違反天地自然規律。地府記錄為不正當淫亂,對此類行為懲戒很嚴厲。自古以來男為陽,女為陰,你們現在在世陽人簡直亂來。男女淫亂都要受懲戒,更何況你如此亂來!地府對這種行為不能容忍,懲戒是比普通淫亂罪加多一倍時間。調你靈體出來是讓童子回去陽世告知眾生,此男男女女同性戀之事,地府天地不容。”

Yama B (who governs country B) pointed at the sinned spirit standing at the front and said, “Why do you take drugs? You’re a man, so why do you act promiscuously with other men, and a large number, in fact? What you did was an absolute disgrace. Do you know that homosexual acts, like men with men and women with women, violates the natural laws? The courts would record it as improper sexual misconduct and are incredibly strict with these kinds of deeds. From the ancient past, males are considered as ‘yang’ while females are considered as ‘yin’. Nowadays, you people in the human realm are thoughtless. Even sexual misconduct carries with it a punishment, not to mention your kind of deeds! The courts do not tolerate it. The sentence of the punishment for this kind of deed is usually 100% longer than normal sentences for sexual misconduct. We’ve transferred you here so that our guest could warn the sentient beings in the human realm that homosexual acts are not tolerated.”
