Relationship Of The Three Provisions 三资粮之关系

闻而信,
信而愿,
乃肯执持。

净土宗九祖蕅益大师
《弥陀要解》

With listening then having Faith, having Faith then having Aspiration, then is there willingness to firmly uphold Practice.

Pure Land Tradition’s 9th Patriarch Great Master Ǒuyì
(Essential Explanation Of Amitābha Sūtra)

信越深,
愿越切,
行越实,
品越高。

The more profound the Faith, the more sincere the Aspiration, the more true the Practice, the more high the Grade.

Cycle Of Three Provisions

[A]

While Learning usually
gives rise to [1] Faith,
that inspires [2] Aspiration,
that motivates [3] Practice;

[B]

some [i] Practice can also
give rise to some [ii] Faith,
that inspires some [iii] Aspiration,
that motivates more Learning,
which leads back to [A].

  • I belong to the [i] [ii] [iii] type and hopefully this will lead to the [1] [2] [3] in the course of my Pure Land cultivation.
