Mindfulness Of Buddha As The Most Honoured
Our [founding] teacher [Śākyamuni Buddha] originally opened immeasurable [Dharma] doors [to Buddhahood], among [them with] mindfulness [of Amitā(bha)] Buddha [阿弥陀佛: Āmítuófó] as [the] most honoured [one]. Merging all false thoughts [to] return [to a] true thought, totally gathering all [six sense] roots [into] one root [of the mind]. Not needing three [great] asaṃkhyeya kalpas [to] cultivate blessings [and] wisdom, only with [the] six words [南无阿弥陀佛: Námó Āmítuófó] transcending [the] universe. [The] Thus Come [One’s] golden mouth [is] without false speech, [as can be] clearly understood [from that] stated in writings, [which] still completely exist.
