Diligent Cultivation’s Fourfold Explanations
Creating blessings [but] not mindful [of] Buddha, [when] blessings end, still sunken [in suffering’s ocean].
Mindful [of] Buddha [but] not creating blessings, entering [the] path [with] much suffering [and] hardship.
Without blessings [and] not mindful [of] Buddha, [with] hell[-beings, hungry] ghosts [and] animals grouping.
Mindful [of] Buddha [and] simultaneously creating blessings, later realising [as] two-footed honoured ones [i.e. Buddhas].
Pure Land Tradition’s 8th Patriarch Great Master Liánchí
(Yúnqī’s Collected Pure Land Sayings)
Great Master Liánchí: ‘Now upholding the name [of Āmítuófó], is the good within good, and blessing within blessings.’
[Note: According to Āmítuófó’s 18th vow, the Three Provisions (三资粮) form the core criteria to reach his Pure Land. Niànfó (念佛) is the direct way to increase good roots (善根) and blessed virtues (福德) (i.e. blessings and meritorious virtues; merits). This is while there are many other practices that also increase good roots and blessed virtues, to support birth there, with higher grades.
As in the last line in purple, also taught by the Great Master, Niànfó definitely creates much blessings. Thus, ‘not creating blessings’ mentioned in Line  refers to not also doing so, in ways beyond Niànfó, to create even more blessings, such as by doing good to help others. It is of course best to do both – to have diligent Niànfó and helping of others.]
