[49] With Faith And Aspiration Mindful Of The Buddha With Sincere Wholeheartedness, The Three Powers Will Immediately Appear 信愿念佛志诚,三力即得显现

[49] [With] Faith [And] Aspiration Mindful [Of The] Buddha [With] Sincere Wholeheartedness, [The] Three Powers [Will] Immediately Appear


[It] should [be] known [that the] Buddha’s [Āmítuófó (阿弥陀佛)] power [is] inconceivable, [the] Dharma’s power [is] inconceivable, [and] self-nature’s meritorious virtues’ power [is] inconceivable.


[As] these three [are] inconceivable, if without [the] sincere wholehearted mind of Faith [and] Aspiration mindful [of the] Buddha[‘s name], then [are they] not able [to] arise [and] appear.


Having [the] mind of sincere wholeheartedness [to] seek birth [in the] Western [Pure Land Of Ultimate Bliss (西方极乐世界)], these three kinds [of] inconceivable great majestic supernormal powers, [will] immediately attain appearance.


Like riding [a] big steamboat, also encountering [a] favourable wind, not departing [from] right mindfulness, [there is] immediate birth [in the] Western [Pure Land].
