Sudden Entry Of Buddhas’ Ocean 顿入佛海 [9] This Mind Becomes Buddha, This Mind Is Buddha 是心作佛,是心是佛

顿入佛海

生心念佛时,「是心作佛,是心是佛」,以一念顿入佛海。故曰,「一称『南无佛』,皆已成佛道」。「若人专念弥陀佛,是名无上深妙禅」,岂不至圆至顿?果德愿力不可思议,因心信力亦不可思议。

Sudden Entry Of Buddhas’ Ocean

When sentient beings’ minds [are] mindful [of] Buddha, ‘[it] is [the] mind [that] becomes Buddha, [and it] is [the] mind [that] is Buddha’, with one thought suddenly entering [the] Buddhas’ [right all-knowing] ocean. Thus saying, ‘[With] one recitation [of] “Námó Buddha[ya]”, all already accomplish [the] Buddhas’ path’. [As] ‘If [a] person [has] focused mindfulness [of] Āmítuófó, [this] is named [as] unsurpassable profound [and] wonderful meditation’, how [can this] not arrive [at] perfect [awakening, and] arrive [at] sudden [awakening]? [With the] effect’s virtues, Aspiration’s power [is] inconceivable, [and with the] causal mind, Faith’s power [is] likewise inconceivable.
