A group of ghosts were feeling guilty for their bad deeds and cried out these verses.
Sixty thousand years have passed while we have been boiling in hell. When will this suffering end?
Dear friends, our suffering seems to last forever. This is the result of evil deeds done by us.
We were very evil in the human world. Even though we had lots of money, we did not practice generosity, we did not collect merit.
Once I escape from this ghost world and am reborn in the human world, I hope that I will be generous and virtuous. I must do many wholesome deeds.
