*The door is drawn to Gu Song, and the monk's eyelids are heavy. The eyelids are seven or eight, and the thunder and chariot cannot hit it. Unable to move, I chanted Amitabha three or five times, recommending Li Huzi in the East Village to be born in heaven, Meng Balang in the West Mountain to be strong, and the poor children in the Futian Courtyard cried out, begging me for a penny and a lot of money.
Master Sundan was performing Buddhist rituals for Huayan, and he came with this scroll to beg for help. He said that if the egret's butt was unbearable, he would cut it with a knife. He could hold this scroll and go there. Anyone who can help him with hundreds and thousands of gifts would be able to help him. Lu Zhiti.
