Today, the 17th day of the 12th lunar month, is the day of rebirth in Pure Land for the Pure Land Tradition’s 12th Patriarch Great Master Chèwù. Námó Āmítuófó.
Clear Statement At ‘Foot Of Incense’ Studio
With death and birth as a matter great,
yet coming days are not many.
As the path’s practice is yet accomplished,
am truly and deeply ashamed with dread.
May honoured guests take a good look,
at this afternoon’s stick of incense.
Not daring to lightly neglect it,
trusting you to be so kind to inspect it, and to forgive me.

(Great Master Chèwù’s Bequeathed Collection)
With this, Great Master reflected,
and motivated his own Pure Land practice,
when handling each task, using a foot of incense’s time as the limit.
