PRAYER FOR REBIRTH IN THE PURE LAND

Prayer For Rebirth In The Pure Land

“May I take rebirth in the pure land.” It doesn’t matter whether we fully understand these words, it is the inner sentiment that matters.

We call on the Buddha Amitābha, Lord of the Pure Land, again and again. Buddha Amitābha said: “If you wish to come and be born in my realm, you must always call me to mind again and again; you must always keep this thought in mind without letting up, and thus you will succeed in coming to be born in my realm.”

It is important to apply our knowledge internally. The Buddha attained enlightenment in this way. The pure lands are internal; the mental afflictions are internal. The crucial factor is recognising the nature of our mental afflictions, as it is only through this recognition that we can attain Buddhahood.

I’m sure the same works for calling on God in the pure realm (heaven).
