You will offer alms to sixty-two million Buddhas and will guard and uphold their Dharma storehouses, and after that you will attain supreme perfect enlightenment. You will teach and convert bodhisattvas as numerous as twenty thousand ten thousand million Ganges sands and will cause them to attain supreme perfect enlightenment. Your land will be named Ever Standing Victory Banner, its soil will be clean and pure and made of lapis lazuli. The kalpa will be named Wonderful Sound Filling Everywhere.
