To chant the Ten Deviations to the heavens distant and remote,
singing and calling out to the ten thousand Supreme Beings
through established ceremony.
Concerning the Rivers and Seas (He Hai)
On Jing Mo Mountain ('Calm-Silent' Mountain (one of the Five Sacred Peaks)),
where were stored up the (sacred works), hidden in the clouds
was also the deep-red smoke (Jiang Yan) that spread
leasurely among the clouds of heaven.
Here bright rays of light did spin and whirl,
Dark and Abtruse (Xuan) are the Feelings of the Mind (Xin),
and within, the Charm (Fu) internally is sufficient.
Along with the Red Preciousness (Dan Bao) on the outside,
there is a right and proper response that can be given to
the crowds of demons and monsters (Qun Mo).
Bind up the entities of the ghosts
Jīng Miè Shuǎng Huí Shī Qǐ Sǐ Bái Gú Chéng Rén Zhì Xúe Zhī
so that their life-force is extinguished just as if it were a light.
Using a straightforward [procedure], reversing the [state of the corpse so it will]
rise up from the dead and the dry skeleton turn into a grown person.
Doing this means demands an extremely [high level study and knowledge]
Shì Sòng Zhī Shí Guò Zé Wŭ Dì Shì Wèi Sān Jiè Jī Shŏu Zǐ Huī
as a scholar trained in the field of chanting the Ten Deviations (Shi Guo).
Therefore it is the standard rule [when addressing]
the Five Emperors of Old (Wu Di), and the Imperial Bodyguard [of the]
the 'Three Borders' (San Jie- Past, Present, and Future Existences)
is to first kowtow to the Purple Brilliance (Zi Hui)
Xiá Yìng Shén Jīng Zhù Yíng Miào Kāi Yuán Zào Shén Bŏ Qí Mén
of the distant light of the sun, reflecting as it does,
the Divine Brilliance glittering like a crystal
and fix one's mind so that it may be filled with the
clever and subtleness it has as it opens out.
Training the Divine Mind (Shen) [begins] as if one were at the pool
that stands before the Gate (Men).
