問:

弟子於2018年9月12日在觀音堂拜佛時,見觀音堂佛台的菩薩聖像金光萬丈,整個佛台金光閃閃。不久,菩薩傳意念於我:“弟子聽令,待會兒讓護法帶你下去遊地獄一趟。”弟子拜佛回家後在家裡休息一會兒,感覺身體一輕,魂魄被護法提起,不久就來到了地府門前。

Enquiry:

On the 12th of September 2018 when I was at the Guan Yin Temple paying respects to the Buddhas, I saw that the portraits of the Bodhisattvas on the altar suddenly radiated with a brilliant golden light that enveloped the entire altar. Not long after, the Bodhisattva transmitted a thought message to me, “Attention disciple, in a moment, the Dharma protectors will take you to a trip down in hell.” After I have paid my respects to the Buddha and returned home to relax, I felt that my whole body became light. My spirit was lifted away by the Dharma protectors, and not long after I arrived at the entrance of the underworld.


電眼地獄:懲戒在世用眼睛犯淫欲的男女。

地獄門前的守門鬼差打開了門讓我進去,到了一片比較高的空地,下面是一片很大的平地,環境陰暗,很多罪靈(男男女女),有的臉上如夢如幻一樣,有的是一臉痛苦。這個地獄上空有很多刑具在。我仔細一看,刑具是各種各樣的書、電腦平板、電話、電腦(有新款的電腦,還有那種1998年的舊款電腦)、電視(舊款和新款的電視穿插其中),這些刑具飄浮在罪靈的頭上。

Hell of eye shock – it’s to punish all men and women who use their eyes to commit sexual misconduct:

At the entrance of this hell were two guards, and they opened the gates to let me in. I was walking on a large empty land that seemed very high up like a cliff while looking down below was a huge flatland. The environment was dark and chilly, and there were many sinned spirits (both men and women), some of them looked like they were in a trance while some looked like they were in a lot of pain. Up in the sky of this hell, there were many torture instruments. When I looked more closely, the torture devices looked like different variations of books, tablets, smartphones, computers (both modern and old like ones back in 1998), televisions (both modern and old). These torture instruments were floating about the sinned spirits’ heads.


這些工具是懲罰罪靈的邪淫念頭。陽世的人以為看這些很快活,不知這些惡業種子一旦進入腦子就會成為惡業的果,日積月累,惡果成熟,在世又不行善就是在這裡。只有念經拜佛多種善因,好好懺悔、改過,才能免除這些惡果成熟。

These instruments were used to punish the sinned spirits for their lustful thoughts. In the human realm, people think that it’s a kind of entertainment watching these (pornography), but they don’t know that if these negative karmic seeds were sowed into their mind, it would eventually mature into a negative karmic fruit. As it’s accumulated every day, this negative karma will eventually mature. And if the person doesn’t perform wholesome deeds while they were alive, then they will be transferred here. Only by reciting sutras, paying respects to Buddha, performing many wholesome and meritorious deeds, and repenting and reforming themselves, would they be able to halt the maturation of this negative karma.


一個中年男性罪靈,頭上飄著一個筆記本,罪靈先出現一臉如癡如醉的表情,過後,筆記本打開,裡面閃出電光射進罪靈的眼睛,罪靈哀嚎著,被電得全身不能動。電光持續很久,大概過了七八分鐘,電光消失,罪靈意識昏過去,全身冒煙,躺在地上,筆記本飄走了。

There was a middle-aged male sinned spirit, and there was a notebook floating above his head. His face first showed signs of intoxication, but afterwards, when the notebook opened, a pair of laser beams shot out and penetrated the sinned spirit’s eyes. He then shrieked and howled in pain. He was shocked to the point that he was frozen as the electricity from the lasers coursed through his eyes and throughout his entire body. The laser beams were maintained for a long time, like for approximately 7-8 minutes. When the laser beams switched off, the sinned spirit became unconscious. His whole body was fried, smoking and left on the ground. The notebook then floated away.


“罪由心生啊!在世用什麼工具(電腦、筆記本或淫書)犯淫欲的,死後你的意識就會浮現這些刑具來懲罰你。這些罪靈都是日積月累地看這些不好的、淫欲的影片或書籍,只是在世身體並沒有造太多邪淫惡業,所以才會投到這個地獄。”說完,護法領著我走向通往陽世的電梯,我進去,門關上。門開,我醒過來,回到陽世。

The Dharma protector explained, “Sins are borne from the mind! Whatever tool that you used to commit sexual misconduct while being alive (like computers, notebooks or porn magazines), after you die, your consciousness will recreate these kinds of tools to punish you. These sinned spirits had consistently been watching these unwholesome things, (so their unwholesome deeds have accumulated over a long period), these pornographic videos or books. But because while they were alive, they haven’t used their physical body to commit too many deeds of sexual misconduct. Hence they were transferred to this hell.” He then led me to the elevator that takes me to the human realm. After I entered, the lift door closed. When it opened, I woke up and returned to the human realm.


2018年9月17日在觀音堂拜佛時,看到佛台雲霧飄渺,從佛堂上空飄下一個大螢幕佈滿整個佛堂。空中傳來護法的意念:“弟子聽令,把所看到地獄景象傳於世間人,現帶你去口業地獄看看。”不久,意識進入半夢半醒狀態。

On the 17th of September 2018 when I was at the Guan Yin Temple paying respects to the Buddhas, I saw the Buddhist altar being enveloped by a gentle wave of cloud and mist. Then in the air, a monitor appeared which expand into the size of the whole altar. Then I suddenly received a thought message transmitted from the Dharma protector, “Attention disciple, you must share your observation of the hell realm with the living. I will first take you to the hell of verbal misconduct for you to see.” Not long afterwards, my consciousness entered into a half-awakened dreamlike state.


口業地獄:懲戒惡口、兩舌、誹謗善知識、挑撥離間之陽人。

一個女罪靈被押著跪在地上,雙手被綁在身後,滿臉不服氣,被鬼差用工具把嘴巴硬撐開,把舌頭硬拉出來,整個舌筋差點被拉斷,疼得她滿臉淚水,可是又被鬼差壓制住,無法逃脫。過後,用釘子把罪靈的舌尖拉長釘在地上。罪靈就這樣半跪著接受懲戒,手不能動,口不能言。很多罪靈就是這樣被固定釘在地上接受懲罰。

Hell of verbal misconduct – it’s to punish people who have committed deeds of harsh speech, divisive tongue, slandering of good advisors or sowing dissension between people.

A female sinned spirit was forced to kneel on the ground, her hands were tied behind her back, and her face showed an unwillingness to submit. The executioners used tools to pry open her mouth forcefully and pulled her tongue out so violently that it almost broke. She started crying from the pain and was unable to struggle free as she was locked in position by another executioner. Afterwards, the executioner took a stake and pinned down the tip of her tongue to the ground. The sinned spirit was made to kneel while her tongue was pinned to the ground, hands unable to move and tied behind her back, and unable to speak. Many sinned spirits received their punishment in this manner here.


一個罪靈被綁著,哀嚎大喊,恐懼害怕,被強硬綁在台上,拿了刑具,刑具用火燒過,也是把舌頭硬拉出來,用刑具把舌頭割斷,疼得他哇哇大哭。鬼差說:“在世愛說黃色笑話,又無中生有造學佛人的口業,犯大惡口業,讓他死後下地獄連舌頭也沒有,看他如何再犯口業。”第二天,罪靈舌頭會自己生長回去,鬼差又割,直到他刑滿出獄。

不久,我就醒過來了。

A sinned spirit was forcefully tied up on a platform, and he shouted and cried as he was terrified. An executioner took a torturing instrument which had been burned red hot, and in the same way, he violently pulled out his tongue and used the instrument to slice off his tongue. The man wept and cried in agony. The executioner said, “When you were alive, you were fond of making dirty jokes and making things up to speak harshly and offensive towards Buddhists, they are great deeds of verbal misconduct. Since you’ve died and are here in hell, I’ll make sure your tongue will remain detached. Let’s see how you can commit deeds of verbal misconduct anymore.” On the second day, the sinned spirit’s tongue will regenerate and regrow back to its original form, and then the executioner will repeat the same punishment until his time of imprisonment is up, where he will be released from hell.

Not long after, I woke up.


答:這個人很厲害,她講的完全是真的,真的很可怕。所以高僧大德一般都不隨便講話的,你去廟裡看見一個大法師,你和他講很多,他就跟你講一句“阿彌陀佛”,他不會跟你講很多人間的事情的。開口就是業。非常痛苦,不要到了那個時候再害怕,早點覺悟吧,沒有什麼好講的。還有黃色的東西千萬不能看,我們是人,不能去看畜生的東西,真的是非常不好的,很噁心。一個人境界高了之後就不會再對這種事情有興趣,所有的動物都不穿衣服,你們怎麼不去看?如果我們把人下降一級,比方說我們人全部稱為羊,羊跟羊才會看來看去,你人會去看羊嗎?大家要懂這些道理,千萬不要開玩笑。

Master’s reply:

This person is really incredible; everything she said is real. It’s really scary. That’s why venerable monks don’t casually speak. When you go to a temple and meet with a venerable monk, and you speak and explain a lot of things to the monk, they will reply with the words, “Amitabha.” They will not speak a lot about layperson and ordinary matters. Deeds are created when the mouth opens. The suffering is unfathomable, don’t start to be afraid after you get there, become awakened earlier. There’s nothing else to say. Also, don’t watch anything pornographic. We are humans; we mustn’t watch animalistic things, it’s really bad and disgusting. After a person’s level of spirituality has reached a higher level, they will gradually become uninterested in those kinds of things naturally. All animals don’t wear clothes, why don’t you look at them instead? If us humans were lowered by a level, for example, if all of us humans became sheep, then sheep will look at other sheep. As a human, would you watch sheep (performing unwholesome acts)? Everybody must understand these principles. Don’t fool around.
