[332] Mindfulness [Of] Buddha Is [The] Main [Practice]


[You] should [be] with mindfulness [of the] Buddha[‘s name (Āmítuófó)] as [your] Main [Practice (正行), and] reading [of] sūtras as [a] Supportive [Practice (助行)].


If [with the] Dharma Flower, Śūraṅgama, Flower Adornment, Nirvāṇa, Vajra (Diamond), Complete Awakening [Sūtras], perhaps [with] focus mainly [on] one sūtra, perhaps [with] these six sūtras, [with] each [and every] one in turn read, all [are] without [that which] cannot [be done].
