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?
