[211] [With] Utmost Sincerity Mindful [Of] Buddha, Like Before [The] Buddha


[On] prostration [to the] Buddha’s ceremonial [practice], of people extremely busy, [who do] not [have] convenience [to] specially establish [it, they should] promptly, [with] utmost sincerity [and] earnestness, [with their] mouths recite [the] Buddha’s name [i.e. Āmítuófó: 阿弥陀佛], [and with their] bodies prostrate [at the] Buddha’s feet [(at least once). There] must [be] causing [of] these, [to be with] sincerity, like [being] before him. Then can [this be done].
