VISIT TO THE 6TH PALACE OF HELL INTERVIEW WITH THE KING OF PALACE
Tse Kong who manifested on August 6th, 1977. Year of the Snake
Tse Kong: A whole year has passed quickly, and here we
are again in the mid-autumn season. Time is as fleeting as the current
of a river. This time last year, the honorable Temple of the Sages,
obeying the order of the Celestial Emperor, began to write the book on
hell. Before we realized it, one year has passed. A painful year,
indeed, but a fully meritorious year for me as well as for my disciples
who worked day and night to edit the book. A manís life is so brief,
just as the ancient sages stated, ďsince time immemorial until the
present, septuagenarians are scareĒ. Recently, the sciences have
progressed greatly and every attempt is made to prolong manís
longevity. However, the ancient sages had a proverb that said,
The King-Judge comes to welcome us in person. Yang Tsíien,
follow me. Weíre going to pay him our respects.
I follow you, Master. My respects to His Majesty the King and to
their Excellencies the Mandarins. I am Yang Tsíien, a disciple of the
Temple of the Sages in Tai Chu. My master and I received the order of
God to write a book on hell. We are coming here tonight to collect
information. We wish to be granted your assistance.
King: Be on
your feet. Not too much courtesy, please. I have long heard of the
Temple of the Sages which actively participated in the dissemination of
religious doctrines and acquired great merits. Last mid-autumn we
received the order of God and we are aware of your sacred mission and of
the reason for your visits to hell. Honorable Buddha Tse Kong, and Mr.
Yang Tsíien, I invite you to come inside for some refreshments.
We are grateful for your warm welcome, Sir. Yang Tsíien,
letís follow His Majesty into the Palace. The King Orderly officer,
bring us some tea of the Immortals and Fairies, will you?
Orderly Officer: At
your request. Tea is served, Sir.
without reserve. Make yourselves at home, please.
Thank you, Sir. This tea doesnít exist in the terrestrial
world. Its taste is excellent; it is cooling and medicinal, as far as I
is only a kind of crude tea, but it is precious, because every rare
thing is valuable. Well, I am really happy about your visit, gentlemen.
Human morality is declining so that God Himself is deeply disturbed. He
ordered your Temple to write a book on hell. A large number of humans
donít believe in the punishment they will have to suffer in hell after
their death. A special order is therefore given to Buddha Tse Kong to
guide Yang Tsíienís soul to hell to record the situation of humans
after their death, and the pains they have to endure. During the
mediumnistic sťances organized by the Temple of the Sages, the Celestial
Cherub Yu Hiu uses his psychical divine powers to relay to earth what
Yang Tsíien sees and hears in hell, and directs the hand of Yang
Tsíienís body to write accurate accounts. I am convinced that the
book, once edited and popularized, will bring forth salvation to many
humans. Nowadays, most of the people are interested in materialistic
sciences and neglect the deities. They donít believe in the karmic law
and allow themselves to commit many acts of murder, sensuality and
piracy. Men are absorbed in pursuing material things and think of
nothing but their individual interests. They venture to infringe on the
human law, knowing it contains many weaknesses. And thence, in every
country, the morality of the people is deplorably decadent. Their greed
for material things induces them to behave dishonestly. I am profoundly
affected and disappointed because of the moral decline in the
terrestrial world. It is the habit of skeptical people to disregard the
deities and the law of causality, so they are the ones who commit sins
more readily. None of them will be spared hellís punishment. A proverb
goes like this, ďthe Celestial Net is enormously large and vast; in
spite of its wide meshes no one can escape.Ē I reign over the 6th
Palace which is surnamed ďThe Great Infernal PrisonĒ. All the souls
that come here have previously passed by the 5th Palace where they went
through torment. The surname of ďGreat Infernal PrisonĒ also means
that this place is reserved for the souls who violate the divine law and
fail to observe the rules of morality and virtue will have to undergo
severe, and terrible punishment. Mr. Yang Tsíien, upon your return to
the terrestrial world, do advise humans to regenerate and change from
doing evil. Tonight, I highly regard your visit. The sinful souls suffer
different types of punishment in this place. Humans must be conscious of
their culpability and proceed with a thorough examination of their
Itís quite late for tonight. With your permission we would like
to come back another time for an inspection of the jails.
agreeable. I will be delighted to see you again, gentlemen.
Troop-mustering for the salute...
My deep gratitude for the tea and your precious instructions,
Sir. We ask to take leave.
The dais, now.
Ready for departure, Master.
TK: Here is the Temple. Your body is waiting for you.
