How Pure Land Aids Bodhicitta & Delivering Of Beings

言发菩提心者,
正是愿作佛心。

愿作佛心者,
则是度众生心。

度众生心者,
则是摄众生,
生佛国心。

– 往生论 (天亲菩萨)

Speaking of giving rise to Bodhicitta,
it is precisely the aspiration to become a Buddha.

The aspiration to become a Buddha,
is thus the aspiration to deliver sentient beings.

The aspiration to deliver sentient beings,
is thus the aspiration to gather sentient beings
to be born in the Buddha Land [of Amituofo].

– Rebirth Treatise (Vasubandhu Bodhisattva)
