There is a limit set on the mass of the people with regards
to the constraints of Life and Death (Sheng Si), and their endurance
to such things.

so for these things this is superb.
Therefore they named this Boundless and Immeasurable to
Relieve Souls Out of Purgatory (Wu Liang Pu Du).

Daoist Doctrine states that those of us in this Mortal World (Fan),
all possess these things the Scriptures (Jing) describe,
because Heaven and Earth (Tian Di) has a Supreme Being (Di) who is
the Monarch (Zhi) who is Master over it all.
The Signs and Omens Portend (Zhao) to the people
how this things will carry out.
Therefore, it is correct that Merits (Gong De) exist regarding
such times that the Mind and Feelings (Xin) are to be directed
toward study and fasting, burning the joss sticks.
It is then that Chanting the Liturgies (Song Jing) of the
Ten Deviations (Shi Guo), and [paying attention] the Natural Vitality (Shen Qi)
needs to be done.
