Verses On Remembering Clearly
Past lives are now forgotten completely,
with that already learnt as if yet to be learnt.
Not ascending with rebirth in the Western Pure Land,
in the future life forgetting this present life.
With the word ‘Buddha’ also forgotten,
from where will Buddhism be learnt?
If with lost interest,
there might be fall into the three evil realms.
All those born in the Western Pure Land,
will clearly remember all past lives.
With that already learnt as foundation,
swiftly towards Buddhahood ascend.
