                            勇军王子 Prince Yong Jun

 

在中印度的毗舍离城中,有一位王子,名叫勇军。他的生性非常浪漫,每天过着奢侈的放纵生活,不愁不忧,只知玩乐,因此,全城的人,没有不知他的为人。

In Vesali, a region in central India, there was a Prince called Yong Jun who had a very romantic nature. He swathed himself in luxury every day, heedless of any worries. He wanted nothing but pleasure. He was well-known for this.
有一天,佛陀忽然叫阿难到面前说道:
One day, the Buddha sent for Ananda and asked:
“阿难!你知道勇军王子的为人吗?”
"Ananda, do you know anything about Prince Yong Jun?"
“佛陀!我知道勇军王子是个贪求五欲的人。”
"Honored one, I know Prince Yong Jun is a man with strong propensity for fulfilling his desires."
“阿难!纵欲的人,会得到什么样的后果?”
"Ananda, do you know the consequences of indulging in sensual pleasures?"
“佛陀!像勇军王子这样的人,死后一定堕落地狱,受尽油汤、车轮的痛苦。”
"Buddha, men like Prince Yong Jun will fall into the hells. They will be tortured in Hell of Oil Soup and Hell of Wheels."
“是的,我怜悯勇军王子。他由于生活过于浪漫,寿命只剩下七天了,假若不改过忏悔的话,七天后命终,必堕于地狱。阿难!你现在到他家里,劝他出家吧。”
"Yes, but I’ll treat Prince Yong Jun with mercy. Because he is too lavish and self-indulgent, he has got only seven days left. If he does not repent and correct himself, in seven days he will die and fall into Hell. Ananda, now go to his house and persuade him to be a monk."
阿难奉佛陀的命令,到勇军王子的家来。勇军见阿难的光临,很高兴地迎出来,并说道:
On the orders of the Buddha, Ananda came to Prince Yong Jun's house. Yong Jun welcomed Ananda’s visit with great joy and said:
“欢迎尊者阿难的光临,好久不见了。请尊者将佛陀微妙的教法,指教指教!”
"Venerable Ananda, you are welcome to visit my place. It’s been a long time since I last saw you. Venerable Ananda, please teach us the Buddha's amazing Dharma."
等大家坐下来,喝过茶以后,阿难才以严肃的态度,沉重的声音,向勇军说道:
After everybody sat down, following teatime, Ananda spoke to Yong Jun in a serious tone:
“今天,我奉佛陀的慈命,特地来找你。”讲到这里,阿难炯烔的眼光,射向勇军的脸上。可是勇军还是和往常一样,一点忧愁都没有。阿难又继续说道:“佛陀知道王子的大难临头,你的寿命,只剩下七天,所以当此未断气的时候,要你断除欲念,出家修道,将来才能够脱离痛苦。”
"Today, I come under special orders from the Buddha to meet you," Ananda paused a while, with his bright piercing eyes on Yong Jun's face. But Yong Jun remained as happy as usual. 
Ananda continued:" Buddha knows that you have got only seven days left, so he suggests you cut off your desires, leave your family and began to cultivate your consciousness as a monk, freeing yourself in order to forestall the suffering that awaits you."
王子听了这些话,面色马上变成惨白,心里又骇又惧,一时觉得措手不及。过了一会儿,他慢慢地镇定下来。
The Prince's face turned pale the moment he heard these words. He became very frightened and terrified, not knowing what to do. After a while, he gradually calmed down.
但他还是由于俗习深重,一时无法改掉。虽然仅有七天的生命,可仍不甘心把一切立即放下。他向阿难求道:
But, he was still full of bad habits, of which he wouldn’t soon rid himself. He was not willing to give up everything, though he knew he had but seven days to live. He pleaded:
“尊者!我畏惧地狱的受苦,决心跟佛陀出家。不过,请求方便,允许我在最后的六天中,再快乐一下。”
"Venerable Ananda, I fear the sufferings in Hell, so I’ve decided to leave home for the Buddha and cultivate my consciousness. But, please open the way for me; allow me some happiness in my final six days."
阿难了解他的天性太下劣,唯有允许他的请求。
Ananda knew his nature had been too mean. He had to grant his request.
到了第六天,勇军王子和宫中的一切人,诀别以后,以最后一整天的时间,跟随佛陀出家。佛陀的大慈大悲,允予方便,在一昼夜中,为他开示、受戒。
On the sixth day, after Prince Yong Jun bid farewell to the people in the Palace, he followed the Buddha, cultivating his consciousness for the whole of his dying day. The Buddha showed great mercy and made it easy for him, giving him lectures and instructing him to uphold precepts.
真的,就在第七天后,勇军王子得急病去世了。
Indeed, Prince Yong Jun fell ill quickly and died on the seventh day.
这时阿难问佛陀道:
Then Ananda asked the Buddha:
         “勇军王子,现在到哪里去了?
”"Now where is Prince Yong Jun?"
“勇军虽然仅有一昼夜的修持净戒,但是,现在他生于四王天,做毗沙门天王的儿子。他的天寿有五百岁,然后又投生忉利天,寿命有千岁,再辗转生在夜摩天,天寿是二千岁,这还不算,兜率天、化乐天、他化自在天,这些地方,他又到处受生,寿命都在万岁以上,等到天福享尽,最后就是下生人间,出家学道,成为罗汉。”
"Prince Yong Jun had cultivated and upheld the precepts for just one day and night, but he has now been born as the son of Pishamen Heaven Marshal in The Heaven of the Four Kings. His lifespan will be 500 years. Then he will be reborn in Trayastrimsha Heaven with a lifespan of 1,000 years. And then he will be reborn in the Yāma with a lifespan of 2,000 years. What's more, he will be reborn in the Tushita heaven. He will be reborn in many other different heavens. In each, he’ll enjoy a life span of more than 10,000 years. After his heavenly blessings end, he will be reborn as a human being, and he will leave home to cultivate his consciousness and become an arhat. 
仅仅一昼夜的出家修行,所得的功德,就这么不可思议。佛陀说完勇军的生处以后,很多人都愿意出家,跟佛陀精修净行。
For only one day and night of self-cultivation and upholding precepts, the prince got inconceivable merits and virtues. After Buddha's speech about Prince Yong Jun's transmigration, many people were willing to follow the Buddha and cultivate pure practices.
