Buddha(s) & Beings’ Minds As One/
Beings’ Minds & Buddha(s) As One
All Buddha Thus Come [Ones], are [the] Dharma Realm’s Body [represented by Āmítuófó, who is the Dharma Realm’s Treasury Body (法界藏身) or Dharma Body (法身) of all Buddhas, who] enter all sentient beings’ minds’ thoughts within. Therefore, when you [and] others [have] minds [with] thoughts [of the] Buddha… [It] is [the] mind [that] becomes Buddha, [and it] is [the] mind [that] is Buddha.
([The] Sūtra [In Which The] Buddha Speaks [Of] Contemplation [On] Immeasurable Life Buddha)
Mind, Buddhas & Sentient Beings
Like [the] mind [and] Buddhas likewise thus, like Buddhas [and] sentient beings thus, [of the] mind, Buddhas and sentient beings, these three [are] without differences [essentially].
[As] all Buddhas all clearly know, [that] all [is] from [the] mind transformed, if able [to] thus understand, those people see [the] true Buddhas.
[With the] mind likewise not this body, [the] body likewise not this mind, doing all Buddhas’ matters, [with] ease not previously had.
If people desire, seeking [to] know, [the] three periods’ all Buddhas, [they] should thus contemplate, [that the] mind creates all Thus Come [Ones].

(Flower Adornment [Avataṃsaka] Sūtra: Chapter 16 [On] Verses Spoken [By] Bodhisattvas [In] Yama Palace: Verses 7-10)
Note: The principles in red, in the two quotes above are the same, with Buddha-nature being what is essentially the same. All phenomena experienced is conditioned by the mind. Āmítuófó’s Pure Land’s phenomena as experienced by ordinary beings is conditioned mainly by the Three Provisions (of Faith, Aspiration and Practice) in their mind. Āmítuófó’s pure mind (and vows) enable us to experience his Pure Land’s phenomena in interconnected and interactive ways too.
