The venerable Śāriputta and the venerable Ānanda rose from their seats, made obeisance to the Buddha, and knelt on their right knees. Joining their palms, they asked the Buddha, “World-Honored One, what is the name of this sūtra? How should we uphold it?” The Buddha told Ānanda, “You should remember it well and expound it separately to all gods and humans. Do not be the person who will finally terminate the Dharma. The tenet of this Dharma is that all sentient beings should end the five rebellious acts, annihilate the hindrances caused by afflictions, karma, and requitals, and cultivate loving kindness, in order to walk with Maitreya Buddha. Accept and uphold it as such. This sūtra is also called All Sentient Beings, by hearing Maitreya Buddha’s name, Definitely Avoiding the World of the Five Turbidities and Not Going Down the Evil Life－Path. Accept and uphold it al such. It is also called The Heart of Loving kindness, No Killing and No Eating Flesh. Accept and uphold it as such.
