問:

2018年10月7日,弟子如往常一樣禮佛結束,在觀音堂誦經時,只見觀音堂內雲霧繚繞,不久,弟子意識陷入沉睡,迷迷糊糊中來到一處地獄上空。

Enquiry:

On the 7th of October 2018, it was like any other ordinary day, after I paid my respects to the Buddhas and reciting sutras in the Guan Yin Temple, a whirl of mist appeared and encircled around inside the room. Not long after, my consciousness entered into a deep slumber, and through the haziness, I arrived at the inner sanctums of hell.


大油鍋地獄:喪盡天良、壞事做盡、罪業滔天的罪靈從其他地獄懲戒後墮此地獄下油鍋,魂飛魄散。

大約七八排的大油鍋,每一排都有數十個黑漆漆的油鍋非常整齊地分佈在這個地獄中。一個油鍋可以容納多個罪靈。油鍋前掛有牌子,分別寫上不同國家的名字。原來來自不同國家,凡喪盡天良、犯了天地不容罪業的罪靈在其他大地獄懲戒過後就會發放到這個地獄下油鍋,炸到魂飛魄散。這個地獄的油鍋非常巨大,負責執刑的鬼差比無間地獄的鬼差還要高大,力氣也奇大無比。其中一個鬼差對我說:“我是這個地獄執法的鬼差,以前這個地獄沒這麼多油鍋,油鍋也非常小,現在時代在發展,人造業也非常快速。

Hell of oil pots – it’s used to execute sinned spirits who committed acts of extreme evil and atrocities. After they have been punished in the other hells, they will be transferred here to the hell of oil pots where their spirit will be deep fried until nothing is left, and their consciousness is dispersed without a trace.

There were approximately 7-8 rows of enormous oil pots. Each row were ten evenly distributed black lacquered oil pots. Each oil pot can contain a lot of sinned spirits. There was a label handing at the side of the oil pot that had the names of the different countries written on it. So these pots were used to contain sinned spirits from any countries. Anybody who had committed acts of extreme evil and atrocities when they were alive would be transferred there after they had experienced their punishment in the other hells so that their consciousness is completely dispersed. The oil pots there were gigantic, the executioners there were also a lot larger and more powerful than the ones in the Hell of Avici. One of the executioners said to me, “I am the executioner in charge of this hell. In the past, this hell didn’t have that many oil pots, and they were a lot smaller. With the development and progress of human civilisation and technology, the rate of people committing unwholesome deeds has also risen significantly.


以前的人不敢做壞事,現在的人為錢、為名、為利,什麼都敢去賺、去偷、去搶,壞事做盡。所以油鍋不斷在增加。我們只要接到告示,宣告完這個亡靈所有的罪業後,靈體就會被投下油鍋,炸到魂飛魄散,從此天地沒有這個靈體了。現在很多人在人間表面風光,有錢有勢有地位,暗地裡卻又做盡壞事。這些人中很多都是前世有修為的,下到人間迷惑在塵世,罪業滔天。地府現在正在列出這些在世陽人所犯罪業,只等他們福德漏盡,元壽終時,即命鬼差前往捉拿,帶到殿前審判,入各大地獄受完懲戒再轉送這裡入油鍋。在人間有名有利有權勢又如何,又帶不走,唯有業隨身,It 。”

The humans in the past didn’t dare to commit unwholesome deeds. But in modern times, for the sake of pursuing more wealth, fame and power, humans would do whatever it takes to obtain it, even if it means stealing, making unreasonable profits, hurting others etc. When we receive the notice that announces all the sins that the spirit had committed, the spirit will then be dropped into the frying oil and their spirit will be completely dispersed. From then onwards, their consciousness completely disappears and no longer exists permanently. Nowadays, many people only look good on the surface, like looking wealthy, powerful or reputable, but behind the scenes, they have committed a lot of evil deeds. Most of these people had cultivated to a very high level in their previous lives, but when they returned to the human realm, they became deluded and defiled and began to commit a lot of atrocious acts. The courts of the underworld are currently listing out all those in the human realm who are committing severe sins and are just waiting until their worldly blessings and merits are completely depleted, so when they die, we will order the executioners to drag their spirit to the court of the underworld to be sentenced. Then they will be transferred to different hells to be punished, and afterwards, they will be sent here to be fried to ash and smoke in the oil pot. In the human realm, even if you’re rich, famous and powerful, so what? You can’t take any of it with you when you die, only karma follows you. It is so sad.”


鬼差押送一個男罪靈過來,拿一張紙宣告:“XX罪靈,來自XX國家,貴為領導級人物,貪污枉法,又雇人殺害與其政治有利害關係的人們,陷害忠良,又犯無數淫欲罪,甚至利用權力威脅逼迫女子。雖然在陽間無人知曉,但天地難容,死後在其他地獄受刑後轉發這裡下油鍋。”說完,一把抓起罪靈投入鍋中,罪靈沉入鍋底,發出“嗞嗞嗞”靈體的煎炸聲,骨頭瞬間都炸沒了,只剩下一些黑渣浮在油鍋裡,黑煙從鍋底冒出附在黑渣上,鬼差拿了個過濾網把黑渣撈出倒到油鍋前的下水道。

另一個罪靈也是一樣,一張紙宣判:“XX罪靈,來自XX國家,在其國家有著不可小看的影響力,社會地位崇高,可是勾結無良商人,欺壓百姓,私吞國家鉅款,又牽涉數條人命。雖然一樣在人間無人知其罪行,死後先入其他大地獄受苦,懲戒完後下油鍋。”

An executioner escorted a male sinned spirit. It read from a scroll and said, “Sinned spirit [Name], from [Name of the country], as a person in a position of leadership, you engaged in acts of corruption and the abuse of the law. You also hired somebody to murder anybody who threatened your political power and framed those who were upright and just. You committed a countless number of deeds of sexual misconduct and even abused your power to threaten and rape other women. Although in the human realm, nobody knew about it, the Heavens do not tolerate it. You were sentenced to be punished for a certain period in the other hells, and ultimately transferred here to the hell of oil pots.” After it finished reading, it threw the sinned spirit into the frying oil where it sank to the bottom and making a lot of deep-frying sounds. The whole body and bones instantly turned to ash, only leaving a black slag-like residue floating inside the oil pot that was releasing a trail of black smoke. The executioner took a sieve to remove the black residue from the oil and poured it to the drainage system in front of the oil pot.


另一個罪靈也是一樣,一張紙宣判:“XX罪靈,來自XX國家,在其國家有著不可小看的影響力,社會地位崇高,可是勾結無良商人,欺壓百姓,私吞國家鉅款,又牽涉數條人命。雖然一樣在人間無人知其罪行,死後先入其他大地獄受苦,懲戒完後下油鍋。”另一個罪靈:“XX罪靈,來自XX國家,幫助白道黑道洗黑錢,又官商勾結,販賣國家軍火,幫助權貴玩弄女色,從中收取巨額利潤,犯淫欲罪。死後一樣先入其他大地獄受苦,懲戒完後下油鍋。”

Another sinned spirit underwent the same process. From a scroll, the executioner read out, “Sinned spirit [Name], from [Name of the country], your influence in other countries couldn’t be underestimated. Your social status was sublime, but you colluded with other unscrupulous businesspeople, oppressed ordinary citizens, embezzled national funds, and was involved in several deaths. Although in the human realm, nobody knew about what you did, but after death, you were transferred to the other hells to receive punishment, and then after it was over, you were transferred here to the hell of iron pots.” Then it read out another scroll, “Sinned spirit [Name], from [Name of country], you helped both police institutions and underground institutions to conduct money laundering, and you colluded with both government officials and businessmen and dealing in munitions and providing prostitutes to upper echelons and profiting from it, and you committed in sexual misconduct. After death, you were transferred to the other hells to receive punishment, and then after it was over, you were transferred here to the hell of iron pots.”


“XX罪靈,來自XX國家,黑道人士,走私販毒,是幫派中有影響力的人物,殺人,又從事情色行業,讓無數女子墮落,勾結高官人物,幫助他們為非作歹。死後一樣先入其他大地獄受苦,懲戒完後下油鍋。”

看完後,弟子意識清醒,又回到陽世。

請師父慈悲解答,是否屬實?

“Sinned spirit [Name], from [Name of the country], a member of an underground institution, involved in drug trafficking and helped other powerful members in the group to assassinate others. Also was involved in the sex industry and caused numerous young women to become depraved. Also, you colluded with other senior government officials and helped them cause chaos. Like the others, after death, you were transferred to the other hells to receive punishment, and then after it was over, you were transferred here to the hell of iron pots.”

After it was over, my consciousness began to return to me, and I’m back in the human realm.

May I ask Master to share your wisdom mercifully, is it real?


答:真的是這樣的。那些人下了油鍋之後的渣,倒到下水道,通向陽間的糞坑,慢慢地就生出各種小蟲。從此他自己的靈體就沒有了,他沒有意識自己是誰了,這個靈體從此就沒了。我早就跟你們講過,所以千萬千萬不要這樣。騙不了菩薩,騙不了鬼神,作惡一定會有惡報,很可憐很可憐。

Master’s reply:

They are all real. When the black residue that’s created after their spirit has been deep fried in the oil pot are thrown away into the drainage system, it is carried to the human realm’s cesspit, and are gradually reborn into different small insects and bugs. From then onwards, they have lost their consciousness, and they don’t know who they were. Their consciousness no longer exists. I’ve said it before, that’s why never commit any unwholesome deeds. You can’t deceive the Bodhisattvas nor gods nor spirits. Those who commit evil and receive negative karmic retribution. They are very pitiful.
