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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
