How To Be Without Right Mindfulness Yet Attaining Right Mindfulness 如何无正念而得正念

如何无正念而得正念

娑婆众生,虽能念佛,浩浩见思,实未伏断。
而能垂终心不颠倒者,原非自力而能主持。
乃全仗弥陀,乘大愿船,而来拔济。
虽非正念,而能正念。
故得心不颠倒,即得往生。

天台宗三十祖幽溪传灯大师

How To Be Without Right Mindfulness Yet Attaining Right Mindfulness

[The] Sahā World’s sentient beings, although able [to be] mindful [of] Buddha, [have] torrential wrong views [and] thoughts, [that are] truly yet [to be] subdued [and] severed. Yet, [there are] those able [to, when] approaching [the] end [of life, have their] minds not inverted, [which is] truly not [with their] self-power then able [to] manage them. Thus, completely relying [upon A]mitā[bha Buddha], riding [on his] great vows’ ship [by sincere mindfulness of his name with Faith and Aspiration, who] then comes [to] pull up [and] save them. Although not [having] Right Mindfulness, then able [to have] Right Mindfulness. Thus attaining minds not inverted, [to] immediately attain rebirth [in his Pure Land].
