Upholding Buddha’s Name Is To Uphold The Contemplation Sūtra Well 持名念佛即是持好观经

今天农历四月初八是释迦牟尼佛的圣诞日。南无本师释迦牟尼佛。

Today, the 8th day of the 4th lunar month, is Śākyamuni Buddha’s sacred birthday. Homage to our fundamental teacher Śākyamuni Buddha.

汝好持是语。持是语者,即是持无量寿佛名。【阿弥陀佛】

释迦牟尼佛
《佛说观无量寿佛经》结语

You [should] well uphold these spoken. Those upholding these spoken, are the same as [those with] upholding [of] Immeasurable Life Buddha’s name. [Āmítuófó]

Śākyamuni Buddha

六从「佛告阿难:『汝好持是语』」已下,正明付嘱弥陀名号,流通于遐代。上来虽说定散两门之益,望佛本愿意在众生一向专称弥陀佛名。

《佛说观无量寿佛经疏》卷四:散善义

Sixth, from ‘[Śākyamuni] Buddha told Ānanda, ‘You [should] uphold well these spoken.’ afterwards, [is the] main explanation [of the] entrusting [of] Āmítuófó’s name, [to be] transmitted for distant generations. [The] above [teachings in this sūtra], although speaking [of the] benefits of [the] two doors [of] concentrated [goodness (定善) by practising the first 13 contemplations and] scattered [goodness (散善) by practising the last 3 contemplations’ final practice, it can be] seen [that the] Buddha’s fundamental wish [and] desire [is that] sentient beings [have] wholehearted focused recitation [of] Āmítuófó’s name [as their Focused Cultivation (专修) or Main Practice (正行)].
