When adversities come, do not give rise [to] aversion, [as the] Western [Pure Land’s] Buddha’s disciples [should see the] distant [and] close [as] equals. I now [am only] temporarily as Sahā World’s guest, [who will] before long, [at the] lotus pond meet superior ones.
With Diligent Cultivation Is Birth In The Land Of Ultimate Bliss
Although [with] one lifetime [of] toilsome suffering, [it is just a] moment [in] between. Later born [in] Immeasurable Life [Buddha’s Pure] Land, [it is with] happiness [and] bliss without limit. Constantly with [the] path’s virtues merged [in] brightness, forever uprooting births’ [and] deaths’ roots.
