Amituofo too has deep Faith in our Buddha-nature.
He has sincere Aspiration to be with us,
and continues ‘Practice’ of Nianzhongsheng/念众生*
to guide us to (and in) his Pure Land.
The truth is, while we need to nurture
the Three Provisions of Faith, Aspiration and Practice
to reach Amituofo’s Pure Land,
he has already long nurtured his version of them for us.
If so, may we all
not let ourselves, one another and Amituofo down,
and not let all other Buddhas down too,
for they all hope that we will reach Amituofo’s Pure Land.
