This section of The Thousand Hands Sutra is a part I call the Hell Realms, because aside from sounding a bit gruesome, on the surface, it’s telling us how to escape from hellish states of existence.
Should the hell of knives arise within my mind,
let the all embracing energy of one mind
cause this hell to collapse.
내 마음에 칼산지옥도 한마음 능력 두루 하여 스스로 무너지게 하소서.
