Verses Of Nāgārjuna Bodhisattva’s Exhortation To Be Mindful Of Buddha 龙树菩萨劝念佛偈

今天农历七月二十四
是龙树菩萨的圣诞日。
南无龙树菩萨。

Today, the 24th day of the 7th lunar month,
is the sacred birthday of Nāgārjuna Bodhisattva.
Homage to Nāgārjuna Bodhisattva.

若人疾欲至,    
不退转地者,    
应以恭敬心,    
执持称名号。…

If one swiftly desires [to] reach,
[the] ground [of] non-retrogression [for progress to Buddhahood,
one] should with reverent hearts [and minds],
[faithfully and] firmly uphold recitation [of the] name [of e.g. Amitābha Buddha]…

人能念是佛,
无量力威德,
即时入必定,
是故我常念。

[As] one [who is] able [to be] mindful [of] this [Amitābha] Buddha,
[who has] immeasurable power [with] majestic virtues,
[will] immediately enter [definite] non-retrogression,
therefore [am] I always mindful [of Amitābha Buddha’s name].
