Verses On The Greatest Power
 If there is a deity who created this world, complete with omnipotence, omnibenevolence and omniscience, why is this world, complete with immeasurable suffering?
 If without that not able to be done, why not remove the suffering? Unless without omnipotence, therefore with this suffering.
 If without those not loved, why not remove their suffering? Unless without omnibenevolence, therefore with this suffering.
 If without that not known, why not remove such suffering? Unless without omniscience, therefore with this suffering.
 Since having immeasurable suffering, the world is without this deity. Only having immeasurable Buddhas, complete with omnibenevolence and omniscience.

 There is Āmítuófó (i.e. Amitā[bha] Buddha), who expresses all Buddhas’ great powers, who created the Pure Land Of Ultimate Bliss, encouraging all to, with Faith and Aspiration, be mindful of the Buddha’s name.

The Buddhas are not deities who created this world, only creating Pure Lands. This defiled land is with our collective karma connected, and my suffering is all self-attracted.
 The Buddhas, although are without omnipotence, not able to, without cause and conditions, remove all the world’s suffering instantly, their great powers await us to be called upon.
 The Buddhas for expressing omnibenevolence, created Pure Lands and encourage birth in them. The Buddhas for expressing omniscience, already perfected their Buddha Lands.
