"Kalpa" is not turbid in nature, so it is called kalpa turbidity because of the four turbidities. 147) See turbidity: see the turbidity caused by confusion.There are five kinds of seeing, wrong seeing, body seeing, side seeing, wrong seeing, seeing and taking the view, and prohibition and taking the view, also known as the five beneficial messengers.This is caused by evil teachers and cults in the world, and it is easier to break, so it is called Lishi.The body sees, it is my own view (there is my body) and what I see (there is my own thing) as the body view; the side view: because of the body view, there is a severance behind the grasping, and there is a constant false view. Therefore, it is called side view; wrong view is the most evil of all wrong views, thinking that evil does not cause suffering and good does not bring happiness; wrong view is based on wrong view, and it is based on wrong view. All kinds of wrong views, such as the views of heretics holding on to evil methods, regenerate all kinds of heresy views; Those who are born with the cause of heaven), not the way of Tao (such as repairing ashes and fasting to think of the way of Nirvana).All these five views are the cause of the cycle of birth and death and the fall into the evil realm.The sentient beings at the time of kalpa's turbidity are full of this turbidity. 148) Affliction and turbidity: the turbidity caused by thinking and confusion (also known as repairing confusion).That is, the five kinds of greed, anger, ignorance, arrogance, and doubt, also known as the five blunt messengers.This is caused by all kinds of ignorance and troubles accumulated over the years, so it is difficult to judge, and it is called the blunt messenger.The sentient beings at the time of kalpa's turbidity are full of this turbidity. 149) Turbidity of sentient beings: sentient beings are afflicted by turbid views and turbid afflictions, their karma gradually declines, their minds are blunt and their bodies are weak, and they suffer more than blessings.The sentient beings at the time of kalpa's turbidity are full of this turbidity. 150) Fate turbidity: As a result of previous turbidity of seeing and turbidity of afflictions, the retribution will decline, and the lifespan will also decrease, even ten years old.Due to the extremely short life span, the suffering is also abundant.The sentient beings at the time of kalpa's turbidity are full of this turbidity. 151) Heaven and man: people in the heavens.For the realms of the heavens, see the previous note on "the heavens". 152) The root of karma: Karma: "Karma" is righteousness.Taking affliction (confusion) as the cause, mobilize the body's three mouths, four minds, three ten karmas, and create all kinds of karma with outflows, and feel the bitter fruits of heaven, people, and evil realms. Those who are "obstructed" are confused because they are confused by the situation they are facing and turn things upside down. Because of confusion, they cling to reason and become obstacles to knowledge, and cling to things and become obstacles to affliction.Start a career with confusion, and become a hindrance due to karma.Obstacles obstruct the holy way, make pedestrians stay in the three realms, and hinder the practice of the right way, hence the name.Obstacles include two, three, four, five, and ten obstacles, such as two obstacles: affliction obstacle (started by ego), knowing obstacle (started by Dharma); three obstacles: affliction obstacle (confusion), karma obstacle (karma) , Report obstacles (suffering) and so on.The root, the root of karma, is ignorance, greed, hatred, ignorance, arrogance, doubt, and wrong views, etc. 153) Pure Land: It is a place where gold, silver, glass, glass and other seven treasures are adorned, without the impurities of the four destinies and the five turbidities.The Pure Land can be divided into the Land of Retribution and the Land of Transformation: the Land of Retribution is the retribution of Buddhas and Bodhisattvas who have practiced cleanliness over the past eons.Huatu is the pure land where the Buddha changed for all living beings, and it is the place where Bodhisattvas and sentient beings live before the earth (before the first earth). The "Vimalakirti Sutra" details the seventeen pure lands and the eight methods of rebirth in the pure land. 154) Dharani: translated as "total holding", "holding", "able to hold", "able to cover" and so on.Its ontology is "Mind" and "Dinghui", which shows its function of adhering to the good law so that it will not be lost, and subduing the evil law so that it will not arise.There are four types of Dharani: Dharma, Righteousness, Mantra, and Forbearance.Dharma and righteousness are based on mindfulness and wisdom.Mantra is based on samadhi, patience is based on non-discrimination wisdom.The Dharma door he holds is called Dharani door.
