How The Buddha Taught His Father To Nianfo 佛陀如何劝父王念佛

让我们也劝我们的父母一起念佛!
May we also urge our parents to Nianfo together!

释种决定智,是故於佛法,
决信心安住。
人中命终已,得生安乐国,
面奉阿弥陀,无畏成菩提。

– 大宝积经
(释迦牟尼佛)

‘[As] the Sākyans have definite wisdom, thus of the Buddha’s teachings, with definite faith abide [in them]. When [their] human lifespans end afterwards, [they will] attain birth in the Land Of Peace And Bliss [of Āmítuófó], to face and receive Āmítuófó, and fearlessly accomplish the Bodhi [of Buddhahood].’

– Mahāratnakūṭa Sūtra
(Śākyamuni Buddha)

宝积经云。世尊父王。顶礼佛足一心合掌而白佛言。云何修行当得诸佛之道。佛言。一切众生皆即是佛。汝今当念西方世界阿弥陀佛。常勤精进当得佛道。王言。一切众生云何是佛。佛言。一切法无生无动摇。无取捨无相貌无自性。可於此佛法中。安住其心勿信於他。尔时父王。与七万释种闻说是法。信解欢喜悟无生忍。佛现微笑。而说偈曰。释种决定智。是故於佛法决信心安住人中命终已。得生安乐国。面奉阿弥陀无畏成菩提。
