Then being able by fasting and study in retirement while chanting this to the Heavens,
all this would cause to be dispatched a Flying Apsara (Fei Tian)
so that the God-King can go down to observe the person's life's character and conduct,
and write down theit merits and achievements,
and through their diligence and toil to
achieve [and maintain a level of] superior performance.
Shén Cháo Lǐ Dì Qí Shì Mén Dà Xūn Mó Wáng Bǎo Jŭ Shàng Zhēn
Dào Bèi Kè Dé Yóu Xíng
In Heaven the Ten Thousand Divine Spirits (Wan Shen) hold a Court Ceremony.
The Earth Fairies (Di Qi) attend upon the Gate
[protecting it] with extreme meritous service
[against the] King of the Demons (Mo Wang).
Protected and raised up is the superior True Path [of Daoist Doctrine] (Zhen Dao).
To complete the [process] they get ready by parading and walking around
Sān Jiè Shēng Rù Jīn Mén Cǐ Yīn Wú Suŏ Bù Pì
the 'Three Borders' (Past, Present, and Future Existences) to ascend
and enter in through the Golden Gate.
The welcome news is that there
are none [in need of governing so there is] no Sovereign.
Wú Suŏ Bù Rǎng Wú Suŏ Bù Dù Wú Suŏ Bù Chéng Tiān Zhēn Zì Rán Zhī Yīn Yĕ
There is no evil [so there is] no need for fasting and prayer.
There is no restraint [so it is] Unrestrained and without limits.
There is no [competitiveness so there is no] Ineptness or Coming Up Short.
The Celestially Endowed, of naive and Innocent Nature of 'True Self',
have heard the sounds of this news.
Gù Sòng Zhī Zhì Fēi
Therefore, the chanting reaches those flying Apsaras (female deities)
