[58] According [To One’s] Part [And] Ability, Not Forgetting Mindfulness [Of] Buddha


[For] practice [of the] Pure Land [Dharma Door, it is] according [to one’s] part [and] according [to one’s] ability. How can it be that [there] must [be] getting rid [of the] ten thousand conditions, [to] then [be] able [to] practise [it]?


For example, [of] filial children [with] thoughts [of their] kind mothers, [or] lustful persons [with] thoughts [of] beautiful women, although [with] everyday hundred [matters] busy within, this one thought [is] certainly without [a] moment perhaps forgotten. People cultivating [the] Pure Land [Dharma Door are] likewise thus.


No matter [with] what everyday numerous [and] complicated [matters], not at all allowing forgetting [of] that Buddha mindfulness, then attaining its essentials.
