Where Should We Be Reborn? 应当往生何处?

应当往生何处?

甚难甚难,今得相值。
何不弃众事,各遇强健时,
努力勤修善,精进愿度世?

可得极长生,如何不求道?
安所须待,欲何乐乎?

释迦牟尼佛
【告弥勒菩萨与大众】
《无量寿经》

Where Should We Be Reborn?

It is extremely difficult, extremely difficult, to now attain encountering of one another [i.e. with us encountering the Buddha and these Pure Land teachings]. Why not relinquish all matters, with each, when now encountering strength and health, strive and persevere to cultivate good,
and diligently aspire to be delivered from this world?

Able to attain ultimately long life [in Amitābha Buddha’s Pure Land Of Ultimate Bliss], how is it that you are not seeking the path to reach it? Where else is there to wait for, with desire for what other bliss?

Śākyamuni Buddha
[To Maitreya Bodhisattva And The Great Assembly]
(Immeasurable Life Sūtra)
