問:2019年1月14日,魂體被送進冥界X國地府。X國閻王爺交給弟子一個卷軸,卷軸內容大意是得觀世音菩薩和地藏王菩薩聖意批准讓弟子魂遊冰柱地獄。

冰柱地獄乃八寒地獄的其中一個小地獄,專門懲戒在世淫亂、墮胎、殺生害命的罪靈。

Enquiry:

On the 14th of January 2019, my spirit was sent to the underworld courts in [Country]. The Yama of [Country] passed a scroll to me. I read it and saw that it was approved by Guan Yin Bodhisattva and Ksitigarbha Bodhisattva for me to journey down to the hell of ice pillars.

The hell of ice pillars is one of the lesser hells of the Eight Cold Hells. It specialises in punishing sinned spirits who had committed deeds of sexual misconduct, abortions and deeds of killing.


從高空望下去,這個地獄地貌很像吉爾吉斯冰川。四面八方都是連綿不斷的冰川山谷,濃厚的雪覆蓋在山頂上,空氣非常寒冷,估計有零下二十多度。魂體飄到山中的一個冰窟前停下,門前匾額寫著『冰柱地獄』。無數罪靈被凍在冰柱裡面,男男女女一絲不掛,表情非常驚恐。冰柱下有鬼差看守,地底有大量天然氣從地表滲漏進來冰窟內部。鬼差每到一個時間就會退出冰窟,從外面點火,滔天烈火蔓延把冰柱融化,凍在裡面的罪靈就會被烈火焚燒。外面寒冷的空氣又迅速把火燒過後的空氣冰凍,罪靈又被凍在冰柱上。

Looking down from above, this hell looked like the glaciers in Kyrgyzstan. It was surrounded by glaciers as far as the eye could see. Thick piles of snow covered the mountain tops, and the air was very chilly. I think that it must be less than minus 20 degrees Celsius. I flew towards the entrance of a cavern, where there was a sign called ‘Hell of Ice Pillars’. Countless sinned spirits were frozen inside the ice pillars. They were all naked, and horror showed on their faces. At the base of the ice pillars, executioners were guarding it. While there were large quantities of natural air that flowed into the cavern, in every hour, the executioners will retreat from the cavern and light a fire outside. The searing flames would then enter into the cavern and melt the ice pillars, and the sinned spirits that were inside would then be immediately scorched into a blackened crisp. When the flames subsided, the frigid outside air will return into the cavern and freeze the sinned spirits into an ice pillar again.


參觀完冰柱地獄後(X星,2018年12月23日魂遊西方極樂世界時老者菩薩曾給弟子講解宇宙星空與惡道世界),弟子魂體被金光帶往高空穿過地獄通道飛向X國閻王殿聽審墮落冰柱地獄的罪靈。

四個男女罪靈跪在閻王殿前,大閻王爺坐在案前,不怒而威。

大閻王爺:『XXX,從你先開始。』

After I visited the hell of ice pillars, my spirit was enveloped in a golden light and entered through a portal, where I arrived in the court of Yama in [Country] to attend the hearing of some sinned spirits from the hell of ice pillars.

There were four sinned spirits kneeling before the senior Yama, who looked powerful.

The senior Yama said, “[Name], you may speak first.”


男罪靈A:『我叫XXX,是2019年1月5日違願(清修)聽審案裡淫亂的男罪靈。9月意外身亡後就被投入糞池地獄天天蟲蟻啃咬,痛徹心扉。在糞池裡怨恨女罪靈YYY在求學時期玩弄我感情,也怨恨自己自作多情。我對不起小X(男罪靈未婚妻,也是學習心靈法門),請妳原諒,我愛過妳。前世情緣牽引讓我見到YYY克制不住自己情感,明知她已有家室還是忍不住接近她,陰差陽錯我們兩個造下無數次不可饒恕的罪孽。12月,鬼差押我魂體回陽間討命債、情債。』

The male sinned spirit A said, “My name is [Name], I’m the male sinned spirit who was involved in the hearing of the 5th of January 2019, and who had broken my vow of abstaining from sexual relations and committed sexual misconduct. In September, I died due to an accident, and I was sentenced to the hell of excrement, and was constantly bitten by the insects inside and felt stinging pain. Inside the pool of excrement, I resented the female sinned spirit [Y] who played with my feelings back in my school days, and I also resented myself for being foolishly sentimental. I’m sorry to [Name] (who is the male sinned spirit’s fiancée and who also cultivated Guan Yin Citta), I pray for your forgiveness, I loved you. Due to the affinity of the past life, I met [Y] again and couldn’t control my feelings for her. I knew that she already has her own family, but I couldn’t refrain myself from getting close to her. Then out of a series of strange circumstances, we both had committed unforgivable sins numerous times. Then in December, the executioners came to the human realm to claim the debts I had accumulated.


男罪靈A:『聽審案結束後,閻王判我轉投冰柱地獄。每一天要受火燒冰封之苦,懲戒我在女罪靈幡然醒悟決定和我斷絕來往時不顧女罪靈意願,強迫她淫亂。我錯了,觀世音菩薩,我無恥,請祢原諒我!我現在陰間現身說法勸陽間弘法男女,切記保持距離,感情的事是玩不得,你不知道自己的孽緣什麼時候會再續導致自己造下墮落地獄的果報。』

After my hearing ended, Yama sentenced me to the hell of ice pillars. Every day, I must suffer from the pains of being set ablaze and frozen inside a pillar of ice. It’s to punish me for forcing her to have sexual relations with me even though she realised it was wrong and wanted to cut off her relationship with me. I’m wrong. Guan Yin Bodhisattva, I’m shameless, please forgive me! Please learn from my mistake and listen to my advice, you must keep your distance with the opposite sex. Feelings are not something you can casually play with. You don’t know when your affinity will be triggered and would cause you to sow the seeds of your demise and descent to hell.”


大閻王爺:『已有妻室(在地府,未婚妻是屬於正式夫妻)還要在外淫亂,傷身又傷心,下世輪迴又是惡緣再續。既已學佛就理當克制自己,保持距離。本王奉勸心靈法門許願清修者,不管什麼原因違願破除戒律,天地律法對此是嚴懲,此乃佛前大妄語。對於許願一事不要不當一回事,今年地府會嚴懲犯佛法戒律、違願、斂財及誹謗者。望童子回陽世代為書寫。』

The senior Yama said, “You already had a wife (in the courts, a fiancée is considered to be one’s official wife) yet you still commit adultery. Not only does it damage your body, but also your mind. This unwholesome affinity will continue in your future life. Since you already learned Buddhism, you should have controlled yourself and kept your distance. I also advise that all Guan Yin Citta cultivators who made vows to abstain from sexual relations, regardless of whatever reason that made you break the vow, the laws of heaven and earth still considers it a grave offence. It is a deed of significant verbal misconduct in front of the Buddha. One must not take the vows they made lightly. This year, the courts will severely punish all those who violated the disciplinary rules of the Buddha Dharma, those who broke their vows, those who profit using the name of the Buddha and those who slander and defame the Buddha. I hope that our honoured guest will put all of this down in a book for the future generations to be aware.”


女罪靈B:『我叫XXXXXX(外國名字),來自XX賓。我年輕時家裡貧窮,被人蛇集團賣來X門一間桑拿做陪座小姐。後來年紀稍大,就轉做媽媽桑,負責替店鋪訓練年輕貌美的小姐下海陪客抽取傭金。店內小姐不小心懷孕就帶她們去墮胎。40多歲時,身體被查出來有癌症,是乳癌末期,死前受盡化療放療,百般折磨才斷氣。』

The female sinned spirit B said, “My name is [Name], I come from [Country]. When I was young, my family was very poor, and I was taken by a human smuggling syndicate and sold to a spa resort to be a bar girl. Then when I grew older, I became a madam for the resort and was responsible for training young, beautiful girls to entertain their customers to receive commission and rewards. If any girls in the resort were accidentally pregnant, I would take them to the hospital to get it aborted. When I was over forty years old, I was diagnosed with cancer. It was the terminal stage of breast cancer. Before I died, I was treated with chemotherapy and radiotherapy and suffered immense agony and torture before I breathed my last.


女罪靈B:『死後就在冰柱地獄,每日鬼差點燃漫天大火把冰柱融化,我們罪靈雖然被冰凍住,可是靈魂意識還是清醒,能夠感受火焰的熱度。一瞬間,冰窟內的寒流又會把我們重新冰封凍住,這種折磨太痛苦,令人恐懼害怕,又被冰在柱子上不能逃脫。生不如死啊!閻王爺,我也是被人賣去下海的啊!』

After I died, I was sentenced to the hell of ice pillars. Every day, the executioners would ignite a blazing flame to melt the ice pillars so that we sinned spirits recover our consciousness and could feel the scorching heat. Then in an instant, a gust of freezing air will re-enter the cavern and freeze us into ice pillars again. This kind of torture is unbearable and terrifying, and we couldn’t escape when we’re frozen. I wish I could die permanently! Yama, I am also a victim! I was sold into prostitution!


大閻王爺:『34歲時有人勸你從良不要賣淫為生,為何執迷不悟?還害家鄉無知少女犯下邪淫罪孽,打胎害命。雖然憐憫妳命運多舛,可陰律無情,果報還是自受!』

女罪靈C:『我叫唐XX,住在珠X一帶。家族靠海為生,擁有幾艘自己的漁船,每日出海捕捉海產供應給珠X近海的海鮮店家。老公病死後,我自己一個女人辛苦,又沒讀書,改嫁給一個負責出海的夥計。58歲得了奇怪的病,全身疙瘩化膿,極度痛苦中死去。死後就在這個冰柱地獄受冰封之苦。閻王爺說我每日出海捕殺海族然後用大量冰塊凍死,所以罰我下來這個地獄感受一下殺生的地獄果報……』(女罪靈哭泣聲)

The senior Yama said, “When you were 34, somebody tried to persuade you to change career and don’t continue with prostitution, but why did you refuse to realise the error of your ways? You also ruined many ignorant young girls from rural areas to commit the sins of sexual misconduct and the deeds of abortion. Although I do take pity of the hardships of your fate, the laws are indifferent; you must still reap what you sow!”

The female sinned spirit C said, “My name is [Name], I’m from [City]. My family depends on the sea to sustain their livelihood and owns a few fishing boars. Everything, they would go out to sea to catch a supply of seafood and sell it to the seafood restaurants close to the sea. After my husband died from illness, it was very hard for a single woman like me; I also lacked any academic qualifications. So I married a companion was who was responsible for going out to sea. At age 58, I caught a strange disease, and became inflamed and covered in pimples that contained pus. And amid the excruciating pain, I died. Afterwards, I was sentenced to be punished in the hell of ice pillars. Yama said that because when we were out at sea, we would like just large quantities of ice to freeze the sea creatures to death, that’s why I was sentenced to that hell to experience the same kind of pain and punish me for my deeds of killing.” (The female sinned spirit wept).


男罪靈D:『我來自香X,名叫張XX。生前開一家情趣用品店,售賣情色物品,色情刊物、影碟。因為從事這個行業,接觸大量淫穢刊物,本身自己也喜歡出去夜場喝酒淫亂。死前,前列腺癌及愛滋病,死的時候年紀不足36。死後被警察(鬼差)帶去冰柱地獄,我意識清醒時已經在冰柱裡受懲戒了。不知道原來不可以開情色用品店,我以為法律批准,自己也是奉公守法交稅開店,原來是錯的!不懂啊……』(男罪靈哭泣聲)

大閻王爺:『陽間法律認可的行業,在地府實為犯陰律,只是陽間人不懂陰律懲戒、地獄果報。現觀世音菩薩慈悲憐憫地獄苦果,特派童子遊冰柱地獄書寫罪靈陽世罪孽,讓陽間眾生引以為戒。以這些文章分享功德讓你們轉投人道,免墮畜生道。現在隨鬼差回冰柱地獄繼續受懲戒。』

感恩師父。

弟子 2019-01-14

Male sinned spirit D said, “I came from [Country], my name is [Name]. When I was alive, I opened an adult shop that sold sex toys, erotic goods, pornographic materials and CDs. Because I was in this industry, I was exposed to large quantities of pornographic content. Also, I liked going out to nightclubs to have a drink and have casual sex. Before I died, I contracted prostate cancer and HIV, and when I died, I wasn’t even 36 years old yet. After I died, I was taken by the executioners to the hell of ice pillars. When my consciousness returned to me, I found myself frozen inside an ice pillar and undergoing my punishment. I didn’t know that I shouldn’t be opening an adult shop. I thought it was lawful. I also abided by the law, and I pay my taxes. So I was wrong! I didn’t know…” (The male sinned spirit cried).

The senior Yama said, “Although the living realm might accept some industries as lawful, in reality, it had violated the laws of the underworld. It’s just that the people of the living do not understand nor aware of the disciplinary rules of the underworld and the karmic retribution of hell. It’s due to Guan Yin Bodhisattva’s mercy and pity to those who suffer in hell that our honoured guest is sent to journey into the hells to observe and write down the testimonials of the sinned spirits and share it with the living so that they can learn from your lessons and take it as a warning. And with this sharing, you would also accumulate some merit-virtues that will allow you to reincarnate in the human realm instead of the animal realm. Now go with the executioners and return to the hell of ice pillars and continue your punishment.”

I’m grateful Master.

14th of January 2019.


答:所以千萬不要逼迫人家去賣淫或做這種事情,不然等到你死了之後,魂魄遊啊遊啊搞不清楚,一旦醒過來,可能已經在地獄了。一定要當心。上面講的這些人,你們如果去查的話肯定能查到。過去也有很多人寫關於遊地獄的,說有一個人偷情,從水管往下爬,摔死了,後來別人去查,真的查到有這樣的人和事。有些事情你們沒有看見不代表不是真的。要做好孩子,千萬不要做壞人,天律就是惡有惡報,一定要懂。

Master’s reply:

That’s why never force others to sell sex or sex-related things. Otherwise, when you die, you might feel drowsy and unconscious for a brief time, and then when your consciousness returns, you discover that you’re already in hell. You must be careful. About the people who gave their testimonials, if you go check, then you should be able to discover it. In the past, many people had written about their experience in hell. One said that somebody had an affair, and when they were climbing back down using the pipes, he fell and died. Then somebody went and checked and truly, there was something like that happened. There are some things that although you haven’t seen it, it doesn’t mean that it doesn’t exist. You must be a good child. Never be a bad person. The law of heaven is that unwholesomeness will encounter unwholesome retribution or consequence. You must understand.
