Thus I have heard. At one time, the Buddha resides at the top of Diamond Mountain of the Great Kingdom of Fires.
The Buddha looks around and finds four directions filled with burning fires.
For some moments, the Buddha sighs for a long while and takes a universal look at the worldly land with different beings.
“Oh！ My goodness!” the Buddha says to himself, “how shall I save those miserable beings from sufferings?”
Thus, the Buddha goes into deep meditation.
All of a sudden, millions and billions of worldly universes, Bodhisattvas from countless realms, from the Trayastrimsa down to the Ten Diamond realms and the palaces of the evils, are all shaken.
At this moment, Buddhas from the past, the present and the future have gathered in upright meditation.
The Bodhisattvas sit around the Buddhas, trying to keep calm in mind and thus are motionless.
Countless Vajradharas as security guards are wandering around in much uneasiness.
Those Heavenly fairies and demons are running around in greater panic.
At that time, a Bodhisattva from the Tenth Diamond Realm moves forward while arranging his clothes in perfect order. He says to the Buddha, “My Lord！ This seems to be an auspicious sign. Is it for good or for bad?”
The Buddha smiles, but does not make any remarks.
Among the audience, a Bodhisattva named Merciful Diamond says quietly to a neighboring Bodhisattva of the Diamond Realm, “This is not a good sign. Because the Buddha has gone into deep meditation for the great mercy, I don’t think it is a good sign. Let’s just wait and see what the Buddha has to say.”
At this time, the Bodhisattva of Virtues asks Merciful Diamond, “What is meditation for great mercy?” Merciful Diamond says, “It means some people need our help. Oh! Have mercy for them!” With these words, the bodies and souls of all these Bodhisattvas are purified.
Almost instantly, a message from the mind of the Buddha is spread to all beings.
Thus the Buddha awakens from his meditation and makes these remarks, “Poor men! Have mercy! Those worldly beings are going to die. Have you seen that? I have seen that none of them understands my teachings. They can’t feel my heart and my soul. They have been kidnapped by the evils. Please tell, who has a solution? Who among the worldly beings have a solution to keep the poisonous demons under control?”
