Evening Scriptures

 

Melody of the steps in the void

The great Tao is a thoroughly mysterious emptiness, it can be perceived as long as one focuses on it.

Refine your nature to enter the ranks of the immortals and then enter the diamond body.

Free souls from suffering in the three realms, free them from the five sorrows of the underworld.

Returning to relying entirely on the writings of the Most High, perform the ceremony of reverence in contemplative reflection.

 

Praise

Tai Yi heavenly sovereign saves from suffering from

 

Praise

Numinous sounds are everywhere. Eliminate guilt and mistakes. When precious titles are proclaimed, they help those in danger and need. The ritual master opens the altar. Perform the hymns of the teachings. All Daoists express their appreciation. With echoing voices we answer in the same way as the voices we answer.

 

Downstream travel ship

The miracles of the Supreme Heavenly One who delivers from suffering are difficult to evaluate, shrouded in the purple glow that is repeatedly cultivated every eons.With promising clouds in five colors under his feet, which precede the nine-headed lion.Sweet dew in the bowl-shaped vase is often sprinkled willow in hand without appreciating the time.Seek the Master in a thousand places, in a thousand places he descends, continually as the vessel of salvation from the flow of attachment. Incense offering for adoration of the Most High Heavenly One, who frees from suffering in the ten directions.

Hymn to the opening of the Holy Scriptures

Quiet and still reaching back to the spring-less eons looming in the void. The deep and deep writings that can recognize their deep truth and infer from it.On the Path of Great Advancement, who can count the years lived in an eon? Neither born nor dying, this wish is borne by the lotus flower.The heart of compassion transcends and transcends the three realms and brings liberation to many people in the world.The perfected man of the highest virtue will be immortal for all time.

 

The wonderful script of the deepest grotto Numinous Treasure for liberation from suffering

At this time, the Supreme Heavenly One who delivers from suffering,

was expanded throughout the three kingdoms in all ten directions, incessantly with his mighty divine powers,

Rescue and liberation of all living beings from suffering. To get help, to get off the wrong path

all living beings are without knowledge, like the blind see the sun and moon.

The sacred origins come from the great empty void, the extraction area of which is without restrictions.With shimmering clouds that open the gate of life and auspicious mists that seal the gate of death.

The beginning of the pre-heaven qi of the mysterious primeval beginning is connected with the promising happiness and the pivot point of creation is perceived.

Salvation from all sins, deliverance from all calamities.

In the broad transcendence of the Source of the Immortals, being one with the great power of the Qi of the Tao, one becomes calm in a natural way.

Everyone receives the power of the great Tao to subdue all demons and spirits.

In the hollow, as it shines brilliantly, is the name of the immortal Niwan.

Purple clouds cover the yellow courtyard, it is known as the Lord of the Three Treasures.

Bring them back to the Qi of the foreground above to create the soul of nine heavens.

The redemption from suffering comes from all subtle deities when the redemption from suffering is successfully manifested,

mixed with the sky above, there is no separation, as the qi of the fore-sky returns to the whole body,

everything is accomplished in the person of the natural state. The natural state has its own body,

with its origins, in the Empty Cave its remains are not remains,

every aspect is quite hollow and empty. First, collect the fore-heaven qi to establish yourself.

Second, the Qi of the foreground comes into being; third, the innumerable things arise

fourth radiation arises. There are thirty-six in heaven

there are also thirty-six on earth, the highest mystery knows no bounds.

Wonderful are the writings of the great grotto, which can give life to the Most High, remove all sins,

The highest heavenly Yu Bao Emperor of the East.

The Supreme Heavenly One by Xuan Zhen from Myriad Blessings of the South

The highest heavenly Tai Miao of the westernmost limit

The tallest heavenly Xuan Shang of the Great Jade Palace of the North

The Supreme Celestial Du Xian, the Superior Sage of the Northeast

The highest heavenly Hao Sheng who preserves the life of the Southeast

The Supreme Celestial Tai Ling Sovereign of the Void of the Southwest

The highest heavenly Wu Liang of Magnificent splendor in the northwest

The Supreme Heavenly Yu Xu, the wise ruler of the above

The highest celestial Zhen Huang of the grotto spirit below

Tao speaks of the Supreme Heavenly of the Ten Directions, whose numbers are like sand.

Manifested in all ten directions in the three realms, offering universal salvation to outstanding beings.

By accumulating the qi of the foreground, merits are gathered and sinners are saved at the same time.

Sinners are really to be pitied, I am now speaking of this wonderful scripture.

Reciting without pause, the Qi of the fore-heaven is continuously returned to the body.

Enjoy great bliss in heaven, there are no cries of suffering in the underworld.

Huo Yi becomes a domain of purity, sword trees turn into moon trees.

At the top, go up to Zhulingfu, at the bottom step in and open the Gate of Light.

Liberation of the souls from suffering in the three realms, the way to the ascent into the heaven of the beginning.

Thereupon rose heaven, the divine kings and the multitude of sentient beings,

looked with awe at the revered face and wrote this ode:

The Supreme Heavenly One speaks of the teachings of the scriptures and guides all on life.

Cultivate diligently and learn non-fictional actions; enlightenment to the truth of the Tao will arise by itself.

Neither beguiled nor dissolute, without a self and also without a name.

If one reads these sentences of sin and blessings aloud, the impurities of the spirit will be cleansed after ten thousand times.

At this time the heaven of the divine kings and the multitude of immortals rise from all heavens,

concluded her ode, obeyed the Most High Heavenly, said goodbye respectfully, and withdrew.

The wonderful script of the deepest grotto Numinous Treasure for liberation from suffering

 

 

The Supreme Heavenly One speaks of the True Scriptures to attain the Dao for those born in heaven

At this time,

the Supreme Celestial of the Primeval Beginning, was in the Dailuo Heaven, within the Jade Main Mountain, because of the multitude of Immortals in all Heavens,

spoke of this True Scripture about the attainment of the Tao for the heaven-born and announced to all immortals: For you I now sketch and enlighten your body and spirit,

understand my sermon on the subtle depths of the Tao. All gods and immortals of the ten directions who have reached the Tao all begin their self-cultivation from this scripture and have been connected to the deep mystery. Good men, nice women,

Rely on fasting and the commandments to serve as a bridge, all of these fabricated actions will reveal all true paths. Understand the manifest body phenomena of the Tao, then receive and maintain enlightenment.

Being able to discard the causes of mass fate removes contaminating obsessions forever. Outwardly no thoughts come in, inside thoughts occur, in the midst of calm without distractions appearing,

then a cooling refreshment for five bowels, six bowels are in harmony and healthy. There are various blockages between the three hundred and sixty joints,

the causes of the ten evils, the causes of the hundred and eighty afflictions, the multitude that suffers the source of sin, are all cleansed.

The true Qi of the fore-heavens of great harmony is immediately drawn in, permeates and nourishes the body-field, the five entrails and six viscera, the spirit inwardly observes the true Qi of the fore-heaven,

everything is cleansed of polluting illusion and radiant, shining brightly in the empty space, unfathomable and deeply mysterious, without any artificial acts externally and internally. In an invisible and inaudible state

to reach precisely the state of non-invented actions. Ever since antiquity until today, always keeping calm thoughts, from here attaining liberation through enlightenment. With the power of the Tao to offer and the help of teaching medicine,

then moderate eating and drinking, banishing the corpse spirits, calming the six senses, reflecting calmly on the eighth consciousness, emptying the five aggregates, authenticating the miracle of the three primas,

To attain Tao and attain perfection naturally ascend into liberation. At that time the multitude of immortals from all heavens reported to the Supreme Heavenly Voice:

From the beginning until today we have not yet heard the scriptures of the great tradition,

all of us who are destined hereby are honored to extend comprehensively to all, the fruit of the Tao is perfect and radiant, and so this hymn said:

The Tao is unfathomable, deeply mysteriously calm, invisible and inaudible, which does not interfere with the great void.

The essence of purity and calm has no attachments, the spirit of consciousness and the primordial spirit are all dissolved in the true source

The Supreme Heavenly of the beginning speaks of the True Scripture to attain the Tao for those born in heaven

 

 

The Supreme Lord of the Tao speaks of the wonderful scriptures for dissolving enmity and deliverance from sin

At this time,

the Most High Lord of Tao and the whole multitude of the wise were in the garden of the Eight Moon Tree Grove on the Terrace of the Seven Treasures.

With the ranks of the immortals spread out in an impressive and dignified manner, he gave a detailed account of the subtle depths of the Tao and sat in silence with a gracious and benevolent look. From the mountain of the jade capital, the splendor of the Seven Treasures was released and illuminated the Hall of the Blessed in the underworld. In the hall of the blessed see good people, men and women,were all happy, effortlessly and at leisure and carefree.

Reunion in the whole underworld, hungry ghosts and poor souls, with day after night,suffer all kinds of torments, without looking human, the whole body is disabled and broken, eat raging fire when hungry,

Drinking molten copper when they are thirsty, their feet step on mountains of knives, the body suffers from iron bars,

Bleeding all over her body and her pathetic screams reached the sky. At this moment in this gathering

There was an immortal named Guang Xin who got up from his seat.

Did his homage and went ahead. Report above, saying to the Lord of Tao:

I do not know these poor souls here what an offense they have committed in life in order to be exposed to such suffering.

The Lord of the Tao replied: Those who were subjected to all these sufferings while they were still alive did not respect the Three Lights, with reasons to deceive and forsake the gods.

the ten evils and the five defiance, disloyal and unfriendly, merciless and not childish, destroy and damage living beings, kill and harm living beings, their happiness being exhausted and their lifespan at the end,

they have to endure such suffering. At that moment, with growing compassion in his heart, the immortal Guang Xin wanted to help free her from her suffering.

Hoping that the Lord of the Tao would use his miraculous powers and light of the numinous to strengthen the order for absolution and universal salvation. The pursuit was made with by. favored

the Lord of the Tao, and the bestowal of these golden words were narrated to underline all the beauty and subtlety of the teaching. He lectured on this passage for all living beings,

called “Resolving Enmity Extraction from Sin” and spreads it all over the world,

benefit the living and the dead. Should there be good men, good women

with your heart and soul focused on this pursuit, step into the silence, hold the quick, burning incense and practice Tao,
