‘With great mindfulness [of Buddha’s name – “Amituofo”] sees a great Buddha; with little mindfulness sees a great Buddha.’
Ancient virtuous ones explain this to say: ‘With a loud voice chanting, thus as seen is a Buddha’s great body; with a soft voice chanting, thus as seen is a Buddha’s little body.’
It can also be said that: ‘With a great heart [or mind] mindful [i.e. even if silently], thus as seen is a Buddha’s great body.’ With great Bodhicitta mindful of Buddha, thus can be seen is the Buddha’s supremely wonderful manifestation body or reward body.
