Amitā(bha) Buddha’s
18th Great Vow’s Accomplishment Text

All sentient beings, [who] hear
that [Amitā(bha) Buddha’s] name [‘Āmítuófó’],
[with the] faithful mind [of] rejoicing,
even if [with] one thought,

[with the] sincere mind dedicating,
aspiring [to be] born [in] that land,

causing Buddha’s body to bleed, creating schism in Saṃgha
Right Dharma:
The Buddha’s Teachings,
especially the Dharma Door of mindfulness of Buddha)
