On the 31st of December 2018, I received the Bodhisattva’s thought message to tell me to go on a spiritual trip to the underworld. When I arrived in Yama’s court, I saw that there were three sinned spirits kneeling on the ground. Like always, I paid my respects to Yama and stood by the side to listen.
The senior Yama said, “From ancient times till now, lust is considered to be the worst sin. All religions and religious practices don’t accept promiscuous behaviour. You got involved in unwholesome industries for the sake of wealth and fame, and only did you ruin yourself, you also ruined countless sentient beings to descend into the unwholesome realms with you people. The courts treat these deeds of sexual depravity with severity. Now speak about your sins of lust when you were alive and also about your experience in hell so that the living sentient beings can learn from your lesson. If Buddhists don’t properly reform their physical, verbal and mental conduct, then blame me being merciless. You reaped what you sow; I am just serving you your punishment according to your karma.”
Male sinned spirit A, “My name is [Name’, I’m from [Country]. When I was alive, I was a member of staff in an erotic photographic production company. Originally I was a salesperson in a company that sells photographic equipment. Some friends inside the industry persuaded me to change my career and be part of the photographic production team in a pornography company. Because the costs of living in my country are very high, and I have a wife and daughter to take care of, plus also the salary of that job was very high, that’s why I decided to use my professional photographic expertise to produce pornographic works. During my time there, I worked part-time as one of the male actors in a few pornographic videos. After I died, I was sentenced to the hell of excrement, and constantly be bitten inside the pool. The insects inside the pool entered into my body and bit me inside out, so it was both itchy and painful. I was there because I had been promiscuous with the female pornographic actresses. After my sentence was completed, the executioners took me to the hell of ghost-eyes (newly constructed hell) to punish me for producing vast quantities of pornographic works in the realm of the living and caused many people to arouse their lustful thoughts after watching it, especially the young people.
Inside the ghost-eye ring, five ghost-eye machines were constantly shooting flames at me and burned my entire body. Then there were long silver needles that shot from it, which pierced my entire body. The suffering is indescribable. I was rolling around on the floor, but as the five ghost-eye machines were surrounding us in a circle, we sinned spirits have no place to run. Like so, we were constantly punished by the flames and silver needles without stop. I thought that the hell of excrement was already very bad, but the hell of ghost-eyes is worse. I must still be imprisoned there for many years; the executioners said I must be there for fifty years or more. That’s because I had produced over ten thousand pornographic works which had ruined others in the realm of the living.”
Female sinned spirit B, “My name is [Name], I also come from the same country as the male sinned spirit who spoke just now. We work in the same company; I’m a porn actor. My hometown is XX. My educational level is low; I graduated from middle school. My family environment isn’t good; my parents were farmers. For the sake of taking care of them and paying back the mortgage, I came to [Name of the city] to look for a job. Because I knew nobody, I just casually picked a job, but the pay was very low. Then one day, when I walked down the street, I saw a recruitment leaflet about a pornographic production company wanting to recruit actions. Because the salary was very high, I went there and was recruited as one of their pornographic actresses. I was infected with HIV and cervical cancer; it was very painful. After I died, I was sentenced to the hell of excrement. There were many insects inside the pool that bit me. It was very painful, and I couldn’t escape.
Last month, the executioners took me out of the pool of excrement to be transferred to another massive underground pit and entered the hell of ghost-eyes to be punished. Inside, I saw three to four people constantly being burned, it was terrifying. I wanted to flee, but the executioner used its steel ring to throw me inside. Then the steel ring hovered midair and emitted a beam that shot on to my head. Afterwards, the ghost-eye machines started to shoot flames and long silver needles at my whole body, and the pain made me constantly roll over the ground in pain, but I couldn’t escape. There was a high voltage electrical barrier that surrounded the ghost-eye ring. The executioners said that they must imprison me for fifty years before releasing me back out.
If I knew that doing what I did would lead me to hell, then I wouldn’t dare film in pornographic works. No matter how hard my life is, I would’ve chosen to take two jobs instead. The pain from the punishment in hell isn’t what you can imagine…” (The female sinned spirit cried).
The senior Yama said, “I also sympathise your impoverished and harsh background. But from the ancient past, nobody can escape from the laws of karma. I selected you to come here is to warn sentient beings not to do what you had committed, and they understand that lust is the worst of all sins. Desire is the root causation of one’s descent to hell. People only need three meals to live, so why sow causes that would lead one to hell for the sake of illusionary objects!”
Female sinned spirit C, “My name is [Name], from [Country]. Master had given me a Totem reading once; I was a patient with HIV. Master said that I only had half a year left to live, and if I didn’t properly male vows, recite sutras and do wholesome deeds, I would be taken away. After I returned home, I vowed to abstain from sexual relations. My husband didn’t learn Buddhism nor recited sutras with me, and he didn’t know I vowed not to have sex anymore, and he didn’t know I had HIV. He kept requesting to have sex with me, but I used many excuses to avoid the situation. Then this year, in [Month], my husband returned home in a drunken state, then we had sex. When three months had passed, I felt unwell, and I went to the hospital for a body checkup. The doctor said that my entire immune system had failed, and my blood was contaminated with pathogens. Then I was tortured by my disease until I died. Before I married, I was a call girl during my time in university for the sake of buying luxury to satisfy my vanity. My family didn’t know about it, only a few of my very close friends. I stopped when I met my current husband. I was wrong. Before I was sentenced to hell, Yama said that it was because I was too promiscuous, that’s why I caught HIV. After I vowed to abstain from sexual relations, the courts renewed my record for my deeds of sexual misconduct (the sin of being a call girl and had sexual relations with many people), that’s why my life was extended. But then afterwards, I violated my vow, so the courts directly discounted the rest of my lifespan and ordered the executioners to go to the realm of the living to take my spirit to be punished in the hell of excrement.”
Here, I would like to exhort girls in the living realm not to do unwholesome actions for the sake of materialistic things. You can’t take away these things with you when you die, only karma will follow you. I deeply regret that I did so many wrongful and promiscuous deeds, but all is too late now…” (She cried).
The senior Yama said, “Do you know that your husband in the living realm has also got HIV? You are utterly selfish. For the sake of preserving your marriage, you didn’t speak the truth to your husband. Even if he doesn’t forgive you, that is something of your own doing. Now, return to the hell of excrement to continue your punishment.”
I’m grateful Master.

Take a look, all the plot is so detailed, and it’s not something that anybody could make up. I’ve said it many times now, lust if the worst of all sins. When a man becomes lewd, he would immediately look disgusting. When a woman becomes lewd, she would immediately look disgusting. They no longer look like an exemplary person. People must behave orderly, no matter the circumstances. When a woman laughs, it mustn’t be excessive. You really shouldn’t do these things, it will only bring disaster. You must heed Master’s words.
