Verses That Must Be Remembered
In this present life, already having forgotten past lives’ matters, why expect, in your future life, to remember this present life? With that learnt forgotten completely then, like those yet to learn, why not be born in the Western Pure Land, to remember all lives?
It is exactly due to not remembering, then reborn, life after life in suffering’s ocean soaking wet. If desiring to swiftly ascend Nirvāṇa’s shore, with Faith and Aspiration being mindful of the Buddha, this must be truly practised.
With Āmítuófó’s Pure Land and great vows already accomplished, those born in his Western Pure Land will all attain past lives’ knowledge. Remembering all lives’ matters, and the Dharma already learnt, to most quickly continue learning, to realise perfect penetration.
