心念偈

    
用心念佛,
     用心听佛。
       口不能念,  
     心必能念。

Verse On Mental Mindfulness
 
Use the sincere mind
to be mindful of Buddha’s name,
and use the sincere mind
to listen to Buddha’s name.
Even if the mouth is not able to recite,
the mind definitely is able to be mindful.

Note:
Everyone can be mindful
before, during and after death,
as the mind is always present,
and is definitely active
when dying and after death.

心口偈

单用口唸,
不用心念:
口是心非,
非真念佛。

用心摄口,
心念口念。 
用心摄耳, 
口念心念。

Verses On Mind & Mouth

Only using the mouth to recite,
not using the sincere mind to be mindful:
with the mouth saying so but the mind not,
this is not true mindfulness of Buddha.

Using the sincere mind to gather the mouth,
with the mind mindful, the mouth recites.
Using the sincere mind to gather the ears,
with the mouth reciting, the mind is mindful.

Please be mindful of your speech, Amituofo!
