Verse [On] Western Shore
Suffering’s ocean [is] boundless, [with] turning [of the] head is [the] shore. [To the] Blissful Country is [a] path, [with] giving rise [of] Faith [is] immediate birth.
The Pure Land Tradition’s 13th Patriarch Great Master Yìnguāng
[Note: To turn around is to repent and redirect oneself. With profound Faith (深信) in Pure Land, there should be sincere Aspiration (切愿) to be born there. With sincere Aspiration to be born there, there should be true Practice (实行) to be born there. Once there are these Three Provisions (三资粮), the lotus flower as the vehicle of our birth in Pure Land will be ‘born’ there.]
