Please Faithfully Accept ‘The Sūtra With All Buddhas’ Mindful Protection’
In the eastern[/ southern/ western/ northern/ below/ above] directions’ worlds, there is… Buddha, such and all other Ganges River’s sands’ numbered Buddhas, each in his land, extending the broad and long tongue’s form, that covers completely his three-thousandfold great-thousandfold world, speaking these truthful words, “You and other sentient beings, should believe this ‘Sūtra With Praises Of Inconceivable Meritorious Virtues And All Buddhas’ Mindful Protection’.”…
If there are good men and good women, who hear this sūtra, accept and uphold it, and hear all these Buddhas’ names, all these good men and good women, will all by all Buddhas, be mindfully protected, and all attain non-retrogression for Anuttarā Samyak Saṃbodhi. Therefore… you and all others should faithfully accept my words, and those that all Buddhas say.

We Must Not Be Stubborn And Ignorant
As the eastern direction’s empty space is inexhaustible, its world-systems likewise are inexhaustible. As world-systems are inexhaustible, all world-abiding Buddhas likewise are inexhaustible. This is in summary cited as the number of Ganges River’s sands. These and all other Buddhas [of the southern, western, northern, below and above directions], each extend the broad and long tongue’s form to encourage Faith in this [Amitābha] Sūtra. Yet, if sentient beings still do not give rise to Faith, they are stubborn and ignorant to the extreme!
