What Is The Most Reliable Path For Liberation? 什么为是了生死最稳当的法门?

‘了生死法,净土法门,最为稳当。无论何等根性,若具真信切愿,至诚恳切持念佛号,求生西方者。临终必蒙佛力加被,往生西方。此之法门,乃一代时教中之特别法门。’

– 净土宗十三祖印光大师
(复石金华居士书)

‘[On] Dharma [doors for] liberation [from the cycle of] birth and death, the Pure Land Dharma door, is the most reliable [i.e. the safest and most secure in practice and results]. Regardless of what [spiritual] grade or nature of roots [i.e. high, medium or low], if those complete with true Faith and sincere Aspiration, with utmost sincerity and earnestness uphold [the Practice of] upholding mindfulness of [Amitabha] Buddha’s name [i.e. Amituofo], seeking birth in his Western [Pure Land], when approaching the end of life, [they] will receive the Buddha’s power of blessings, to be reborn in his Western [Pure Land]. This Dharma door, is thus, among [Sakyamuni Buddha’s] one whole lifetime of teachings’ [most] special Dharma door.’

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

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
