Mindfulness Of Buddha In Practice And Principle 事理念佛 [10] This Mind Becomes Buddha, This Mind Is Buddha 是心作佛,是心是佛

事理念佛

事持者,信有西方阿弥陀佛,而未达「是心作佛、是心是佛」,但以决志愿求生故,「如子忆母」,无时暂忘。  

理持者,信西方阿弥陀佛,是我心具,是我心造,即以自心所具所造洪名为系心之境,令不暂忘也。

《佛说阿弥陀经要解》

Mindfulness [Of] Buddha [In] Practice [And] Principle

Those [with] Practice upheld, [have] Faith [that there] is [the] Western Āmítuófó, but have yet [to] reach [the state of ‘it] is [the] mind [that] becomes Buddha, [and it] is [the] mind [that] is Buddha’, however with determined Aspiration [to] seek birth thus, ‘like [a] child recollecting [the] Mother’, [with] no time temporarily forgetting [this].

Those [with] Principles upheld, have Faith [that the] Western Āmítuófó is [in] my mind complete, is [in] my mind created, then with oneself’s mind, that complete [and] that created great name, as [the] realm for fastening [the] mind, enabling [it to] not [be] temporarily forgotten.
