Does Mindfulness Of Buddha Only Benefit Last Moments?

:念阿弥陀佛的圣号只能利益临终时吗?

Question: Is mindfulness of the sacred name of Amitā[bha] Buddha (i.e. Āmítuófó) only beneficial when approaching the end of life?

答:依据《佛说阿弥陀佛根本秘密神咒经》,在念佛的以下十大利益中,前九个能直接利益今生。因为念佛的真实利益无量无边,经中又说,‘如是功德,不可称计’

Answer: According to the ‘Sūtra [In Which The] Buddha Speaks [Of] Amitā[bha] Buddha’s Fundamental Esoteric Spiritual Mantra’, of the ten great benefits from mindfulness of Buddha listed below, the first nine are able to directly benefit this present life.
