Why Will Nianfo Definitely Lead To Pure Land? 为何念佛必生净土?

‘弥陀如来在因地中,发四十八愿,愿愿度生。中有「念我名号,不生我国,誓不成佛」。今者因圆果满,故「我今念佛,必得往生。」’

– 净土宗十三祖印光大师
(净土法门说要)

‘Amita[bha] Tathagata [Amituofo] on the causal ground [as Dharmakara Bodhisattva], gave rose to forty-eight vows, with every vow for delivering sentient beings [from suffering to liberation]. Within them it is [stated that if those] “mindful of my name, are not born in my [Pure] Land, [I] vow not to accomplish Buddhahood.” Now, [since his practice on] the causal ground is complete, with the fruit [of Buddhahood] ripened, thus, when “I now am mindful of the Buddha[‘s name with deep Faith and sincere Aspiration], I will definitely attain rebirth [there]”.’

– Pure Land Tradition’s 13th Patriarch Great Master Yinguang
(Explanation On Essentials Of The Pure Land Dharma Door)

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
