Essence video digest of [ Five major sins and Avici Hell ]
Below information all are copied from original movie.
In this flamboyant world, many people, because of the greed, ignorance or anger lost their true nature, and commit various sins. The Sutra of Bodhisattva Ksitigarbha's Fundamental Vows has demonstrated to us, those sinners will fall into the hell to suffer incessantly.
The hell is situated inside the great Cakravada (ring of iron-enclosed mountains). There are eighteen major hells. Also, there are five hundred secondary ones with different designations, and there are, in addition, hundreds of thousands of lesser ones. One of these is the unique hell which is known as Avici.
The dreadful walls of the Avici Hell circumscribe more than eighty thousand miles, and are ten thousand miles high, and are made entirely of iron. Fiery flames shoot out of these walls covering them entirely from top to bottom and there are beds covering ten thousand miles.
This hell is known as Avici is because it is conditioned by five factors.
Firstly, the punishment is meted out day and night, kalpa after kalpa without a moment's interruption or relief，thus Avici.
Secondly, one person can fill it completely, and many people also can fill it completely, thus Avici.
Thirdly, the devices used for the punishment are complete and exhaustive to carry out hideous tortures and punishments onto the sinners. This unimaginably horrible torture goes on and continues throughout years and kappas numbering in nayutas, thus Avici.
Fourthly, irrespective of whether these sinners are male or female, barbarian or civilised, whether young or old, noble or mean, whether nagas or gods, devas or ghosts, all will receive the retribution of sinful karma and fall into the Avici hell to receive the same tortures, thus Avici.
Fifthly, if a person falls into this hell, from the time of his initial entrance unto hundreds of thousands of future kalpas, he will die myriads of times each day and each night, and be revived myriads of times, no relief or rest whatsoever from his suffering and torture, even for one instant, only with the exhaustion of his sinful karma will finally be able to gain rebirth. Owing to such continuity of suffering and torture this hell is, therefore, known as Avici.
Why are they so miserable ? Why do they receive such tortures ? Why can't they escape even if they die ? Why… Why… Why… Should they fall into Avici hell?
They once were human being, because they have committed sins, they fall into the hell after death, for the sentient being living in our world. There are five types of sins will lead to the Avici hell.
第一罪 First sin
Should someone，should fail to fulfil his filial duty toward his parents or fail to fulfill his duty toward kill or harm them, he will fall into Avici Hell, where he will remain for thousands of myriads of millions of kappas without a date for release.
第二罪 Second sin
If someone should shed the blood of a Buddha, destroy or ridicule the Three Jewels or fail to respect the sutras, he will fall into Avici Hell, where he will remain for thousands of myriads of millions of kalpas and never return.
第三罪 Third sin
If someone should encroach upon or damage the property of some Buddhist establishment, slander bhiksus or bhiksunis indulge his carnal lust in a sangharam, or kill or harm others, he or she will fall into Avici Hell where he will remain for thousands of myriads of millions of kalpas and never return.
第四罪 Fourth sin
If someone should pretend to be a sramana yet actually is not one at heart, violates the rules of the establishment, abuses the establishment, cheats the laity who does not understand real Buddhism, violates the precepts for the Sangha, such a person will fall into Avici Hell where he will remain for thousands of myriads of millions of kalpas and never return.
第五罪 Fifth sin
If someone should steal from the establishment any property at all-grain, rice, other food or clothing, or any kind of article whatsoever without permission, but were taken by this person, he or she will fall into Avici Hell, and remain there for thousands of myriads of millions of kalpas without a date for release.
Anyone committing such five major sins, will certainly fall into Avicil Hell, where he or she will suffer incessantly without remission for even one instant.
May all sentient being never commit such sins.
Really appreciate to all people who helped to make the original movie !
