禅净双修
Cultivation [Of] Both Chán [And] Pure Land [Practices]

是以观音【菩萨耳根圆通】,「反闻闻自性」之工夫,修势至【菩萨念佛圆通】,「都摄六根,净念相继」之净业。即净而禅,孰妙于是!

净土宗十三祖印光大师
《与海盐顾母徐夫人书》

Thus with Contemplator [Of The World’s] Sounds [Bodhisattva’s Ear Root’s Perfect Penetration’s] skill of ‘reversing hearing [to] hear self-nature’, cultivate [Great] Power Arrived [Bodhisattva’s Mindfulness Of Buddha’s Perfect Penetration’s] pure karma of ‘gathering all six roots, [with] pure mindfulness [in] continuous succession’. [As this is] then [with] Pure Land and Chán [practices], what [is more] wonderful as a result?

Pure Land Tradition’s 13th Patriarch Great Master Yìnguāng

至心念听偈
Verses [On] Reciting [And] Listening [With The] Sincere Mind

至心念佛号,阿弥陀佛名。
以观音菩萨,耳根圆通法,
「反闻闻自性,性成无上道」。

[With the] sincere mind recite [the] Buddha’s name, Āmítuófó’s name. With Contemplator [Of The World’s] Sounds Bodhisattva’s ear root’s perfect penetration’s method, ‘reverse hearing [to] hear self-nature, [with this] nature accomplishing [the] unsurpassable path’.

至心闻佛号,亦是自性名。
以势至菩萨,念佛圆通法,
依「都摄六根,净念相继」去。

[With the] sincere mind listen [to the] Buddha’s name, [which] is also self-nature’s name. With [Great] Power Arrived Bodhisattva’s mindfulness [of] Buddha’s perfect penetration’s method, rely [on] ‘gathering all six roots, [with] pure mindfulness [in] continuous succession’ [to] go [to his Pure Land].
