An illustrated leaf from the "Sutra of Filial Piety" - an apocryphal sutra compiled in China for exercise in Buddhist apologies.
The translation of the first two lines on the right side,
If someone for the sake of his father and mother used a knife to out his heart and liver,so that the blood flowed and covered the ground, and if he continued this way to do this for hundreds and thousands of kalpas, never once complaining about the pains, that person
still would not have repaid the deep kindness of his parents.
