Avatamsaka Sutra, Vol. 40

Quotes from Avatamsaka Sutra

 

"For example, there is a majestic tree king in the moraine of wilderness. If the roots are hydrated with water, the branches, leaves, flowers, and fruits will all flourish.The same is true for the bodhi tree king in this wilderness moraine of birth and death. For better illustration, we can parallel all sentient beings as the roots of trees. All Buddhas and Bodhisattvas as fruits and flowers, benefiting all sentient beings with their water of great compassion, which will enable Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in achieving their fruits of Prajna. Why is this so? If the bodhisattvas benefit all sentient beings with their water of great compassion, they will then be able to attain Anuttara-Samyak-Sambodhi.Therefore, Bodhi befits all sentient beings. If there are no sentient beings, all Bodhisattvas will not be able to attain the fruition of the supreme, complete, and perfect enlightenment."

 

《大方廣佛華嚴經》卷40:

 

「譬如曠野沙磧之中有大樹王,若根得水,枝葉、華果悉皆繁茂。生死曠野菩提樹王,亦復如是。一切眾生而為樹根,諸佛菩薩而為華果,以大悲水饒益眾生,則能成就諸佛菩薩智慧華果。何以故?若諸菩薩以大悲水饒益眾生,則能成就阿耨多羅三藐三菩提故。是故菩提屬於眾生,若無眾生,一切菩薩終不能成無上正覺。」
