Verses On Self & Other-Power
Solely with Self-power,
of an ordinary being’s mind-only,
is not with Faith, Aspiration and Practice,
thus without birth in the Pure Land Of Ultimate Bliss.
With profound Faith in the Other-power,
of Amitābha Buddha’s pure mind,
and sincere Aspiration for birth in his Land Of Ultimate Bliss,
mindfulness of Buddha’s name [Āmítuófó] as Practice will reach it.
