What Is The Only Dharma Door For Liberation In This Life? 何为现生解脱的唯一法门?

‘须知佛法,法门无量。若欲以通身业力之凡夫,现生即得了生脱死,离此信愿念佛求生西方一法,佛也说不出第二个法门了。’

– 净土宗十三祖印光大师
(复许熙唐居士书)

‘It must be known that in the Buddha’s teachings, the Dharma doors are immeasurable [in number]. [However], if desiring, as ordinary beings completely [overpowered by much negative] karma’s power, to in this present life immediately attain liberation from [the cycle of] birth and death, [if] departing from this one Dharma [door] of Nianfo [Practice] with [deep] Faith and [sincere] Aspiration, to seek birth in the Western [Pure Land], the Buddha too cannot speak of a second Dharma door [for such swift liberation].’

– Pure Land Tradition’s 13th Patriarch Great Master Yinguang
(Reply letter to Layman Xu Xitang)

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
