Don't play smart in samsara

Don’t play smart with words and ideas that are beyond your level of understanding. Until you attain Buddhahood in the Pure Land, don’t speak too much about non-duality, oneness, „samsara is nirvana”, or other things not strictly related with faith (shinjin). Here and now you should just entrust in Amida and postpone the solving of such difficult matters for when you are born in the Pure Land. You’ll have enough time to dwell in ultimate Dharmakaya once you attain Buddhahood there, but here and now, while still living in your samsaric body, please be sure you are established in faith. 
Simple faith in Amida is the decisive step to perfect Enlightenment.
