The Most Honoured Dharma Door


我教原开无量门,就中念佛最为尊。
都融妄念归真念,总摄诸根在一根。
不用三祇修福慧,但将乾坤
如来金口无虚语,历历明文尚具存。

– 净宗十一祖省庵大师

Our Buddha’s teachings originally opened immeasurable doors [to Buddhahood],
of that within, mindfulness of Buddha [Amituofo] is the most honoured.
Harmoniously gathering false thoughts to return to true mindfulness, 
and totally gathering all [six] roots in one root [of the mind].
Not needing three great asamkhyeya kalpas to cultivate blessings and wisdom,
with only six words [Namo Amituofo], transcend the universe.
The Tathagata’s golden mouth is without false speech,
as clearly proclaimed in writings that still completely exist.

– Pure Land Tradition’s 11th Patriarch Great Master Xing An
