[34] Those Not Relying On Pure Land To Realise Fruits Are All Arrogant 不依净土证果皆狂妄


[This Dharma-]Ending Age’s ordinary beings, desiring [to] realise noble fruits, [if] not relying [on] Pure Land, all belong [to those] arrogant.


[Those] contemplating [on] Chán, even if reaching [the] position [of ‘with a] clear mind seeing [their] nature, seeing [their] nature [for] accomplishing Buddhahood’, are still ordinary beings, not noble persons.


[Yìn]guāng [is] extremely ordinary [and] inferior, without knowledge, yet certainly having guarding of not according [with other non-Pure Land] sūtras’ teachings [and good-]knowing friends’ speech [and] words, [to be by] those transformed.


You, if willing [to] believe, should from [the] easy start, [and] easily accomplish [by] putting efforts into [this Pure Land] Dharma [Door].
