自他偈
Verses On Self & Other-Power

单以自力,
凡夫唯识,
非信愿行,
不生极乐。

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.

深信他力,
弥陀净识,
切愿生乐,
念佛行至。

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.
