Abstract

In this paper I would like to consider the cultivation of Yingsheng juanzhu and all living things that receive it, and the structure and the relationship of the two.
First, I would like to draw attention to the fact that in Gongde liyi miao (_??__??__??__??__??_), the tenth of the ten categories of Miao (_??_) of Jimen (_??__??_) described in the Fahua xuanyi (_??__??__??__??_), it is indirectly written that the profits of perfect teaching Yuanjiao xiangsi ji (_??__??__??__??__??_) are equal to the profits of Shibaodu-ren (_??__??__??__??_), and at the same time, are also equal to the profits of Ershiwuyou (_??__??__??__??_), including the lowest hell.
Next, quoting a passage from Xingmiao (_??__??_) in the Fahua xuanyi in which the Wuzuo sidi of Huishengzing (_??__??__??_) is described, I will state the relation and structure of Yuanjiao xiangsi ji and all living things that receive it, showing that by entering Huanxidi (_??__??__??_), the above-mentioned profits of perfect teaching Yuanjiao xiangsi ji show the full extent of their abilities.
The perfect teaching is a teaching for superior bodhisattvas; but on the other hand, perfect teaching is a sufficiently great teaching to help those in the lowest level of hell.
Therefore, by actively relating to the lowest level of beings, Shibaodu-ren conquers his ignorance, helps the promotion of the Middle Way, ignorance and the Middle Way are tied together, and there is an increase in the power to take away wu (_??_). This is the structure of profits and merit of Yuanjiao xi angsi ji.
