编辑点评: One day Yu Benshu got sick. His doctor prescribed medicine to be taken with cow brain. When his friends heard about this, they gave Yu beef and cow brains for his medicine.

Long, long ago in Xuancheng lived Yu Benshu, who never ever ate beef.

很久很久以前,在宣城,住着一个叫于本书(地名人名待议)的人,他从来都不吃牛肉。

One day Yu Benshu got sick. His doctor prescribed medicine to be taken with cow brain. When his friends heard about this, they gave Yu beef and cow brains for his medicine. Yu gave the brain to his servants to eat and took the medicine. He thought that this way he was not guilty of any crime against living creatures.

有一天,于本书病了。他的医生给他开的药方里有牛脑。当他的朋友们知道后,他们给于牛肉和牛脑当药。于把牛脑给了他的仆人们吃,然后自己把药吃了。他想这样他就以为他就没有冒犯任何生物。

One night he dreamed that a god dressed in splendid clothes scolded him,saying "You must eat beef. If you didn't, you wouldn't smell so foul."

有一天晚上,他梦到一个穿着华丽衣服的神仙责备他:"你一定是吃了牛肉了。如果不是,你就不会那么难闻。"

Yu defended himself. "That's not true! I never eat beef?'

于辩解道:"不是阿!我从来没吃过牛肉。"

The god had his attendant get out the official records and look up Yu's case. "You have not eaten any beef yourself, but because of your sickness you have broken universal commandments. Then you have given the dead body to your servants to eat. For this your life should be shortened.

神叫他的仆人把记录拿来,查看于的案例。"你确实没吃牛肉。但是因为你的疾病,你毁坏了宇宙的法则。你把牛肉给你的仆人吃。因此你的寿命要缩减。"

"However, you have a clean record, and display sincere regret. If you take part in no more killing, and advise others not to eat beef, you will be pardoned for the time being." Yu asked, "What should I do if someone gives me beef?"

"尽管如此,你之前的记录是清白的,而且你表示了深切的歉意。如果你以后不再杀生,而且劝告别人不要吃牛肉,你将可以被宽恕。"于问,"如果别人给我牛肉,我该怎么办?"

The god smiled. "Certainly you should know that dead bodies should be buried with proper respect. You can do many good deeds if you set your heart to it, and stick to it."

神仙笑了:"你肯定知道,尸体应该得到体面的安葬。如果你用心而且坚持下去,你可以做很多好事。"

When Yu Benshu woke up, he knew it had been a dream, but what the god told him was so important, he wrote it down for everybody to read. Living creatures are not to be killed. Even if someone makes you a present of a piece of meat, remember that it is a dead body, and dead bodies are to be buried.

当于本书醒了以后,他知道他做了一个梦。但是神仙告诉他的事情是那么重要,他赶紧把它记下来,以便每个人都可以读到。生命不应该被宰杀。如果有人送给你一块肉,记得它是一个尸块,而尸埠都应该得到埋葬。
