Mindfulness [Of] Buddha’s Meritorious Virtues [Are] Greater Than Making Offerings [To] All Sentient Beings


Great King, if [for] one month, constantly with clothing [and] food making offerings reverently [to] all sentient beings, [this is] not equal to having [a] person [with] one thought mindful [of the] Buddha, those attained meritorious virtues’ sixteen parts’ one [part].


Great King, if forging gold, for people, [with] chariots [and] horses carrying treasures, [with] their number each [a] hundred, with [them] used [for] giving, [this is] not equal [to] having [a] person giving rise [to the] aspiration, towards [the] Buddha raising [a] foot [for] one step.

Śākyamuni Buddha
Great Parinirvāṇa Sūtra: 19th Scroll: 5th [Part Of] 8th Chapter [On] Pure Practices

[With Faith and Aspiration mindful of the Buddha to be born in Pure Land is to stride towards the Buddha too.]
