If there are those mindful of Buddha, it should be known that these humans,
thus are among humans, white lotus flowers,
with Contemplator Of The World’s Sounds Bodhisattva,
and Great Strength Arrived Bodhisattva,
as their excellent friends, and will sit upon their place for Dharma practice,
to be born in all Buddhas’ family.
– The Sutra In Which The Buddha Speaks Of
Contemplation Of Immeasurable Life Buddha
If there are those mindful of Buddha,
they are, among humans, good humans,
among humans, wondrously good humans,
among humans, highest superior humans,
among humans, rarest humans,
among humans, the most excellent humans.
Pure Land Tradition’s Second Patriarch
Great Master Shandao
Such is the World-Honoured One (Amituofo),
in the three spheres (of desire, form and formlessness) without equal.
Respectful praise of him accumulates meritorious virtues,
for swift accomplishment as the most excellent humans.
