Is solely to expound the Primal Vow of Amida, wide and deep as the ocean.
All beings in the evil age of the five defilements
Should believe in the truth of the Buddha's words.”
Took the form of Sakyamuni Buddha
And appeared in Gaya ”
"The Buddha of Infinite Light and Wisdom,
I worship with my body, speech and heart
If anyone is mindful of that Buddha's infinite power and merit,
He will instantly enter the Stage of Assurance.
So I am always mindful of Amida."
Thus, in the end, nembutsu turns out to be a universal practice, for both the “inferior” and “superior” beings. Buddha’s Compassion does not make a difference between the two:
“All the sages and the saints, all people and gods seek refuge in him,
That’s why I also take refuge in him, and worship him.”
"Since it is extremely difficult to free oneself from blind passions and the hindrances of karmic evil in this life; even the virtuous monks who practice the Shingon and Tendai teachings pray for enlightenment in the next life. In our case, what more need be said? We lack both the observance of precepts and the comprehension of wisdom, but when, by allowing ourselves to be carried on the ship of Amida's Vow, we have crossed this ocean of suffering that is birth-and-death and attain the shore of the Pure Land, the dark clouds of blind passions will swiftly clear and the moon of Enlightenment, true reality, will immediately appear. Becoming one with the unhindered light filling the ten quarters, we will benefit all sentient beings. It is at that moment that we attain Enlightenment."
