Does Group Nianfo Create More Blessings?

Written by Shen Shi'an

Question: Does group Nianfo practice create more blessings?

Answer: Group practice does create more blessings for all the participants due to the power of synergy. This is one reason why support-chanting when dying is important. However, blessings alone do not guarantee reach of Pure Land. They are only supportive, to alleviate suffering and increase chances of a better rebirth.

The dying should also be guided to generate enough of the Three Provisions to reach Pure Land: https://purelanders.com/2015/12/30/%E5%BE%80%E7%94%9F%E5%87%80%E5%9C%9F%E4%B8%89%E8%B5%84%E7%B2%AE-the-three-provisions-for-rebirth-in-pure-land

Technically, we are all dying as we speak due to impending death. Thus, when we practise in a group, it is as if ‘support-chanting’ for one another in eventual effect too. In group practice, there is more mutual motivation due to collective diligence and sincerity too.
