One-minded Singing of Amitabha
This melody of singing Amitabha was a naturally occurred inspiration, therefore, we should adhere to its original way of singing so as to obtain readily the inspirational blessings──just as in Tantra the mantras should be repeated according to Guru's pronunciation, instead of taking into consideration the correctness of the pronunciation. At the time the singing occurred it repeated several times, and hence I noticed and remembered distinctly that the very last three notes in the two repetitions were both sung as "Duo O Fo" instead of "Tuo─Fo" as the lyric would otherwise indicate. Disciple Wan Hao based on his trainings in music naturally sang it "correctly" as "Tuo─Fo" and overlooked that my singing was "Duo O Fo." Ordinarily most people would also sing it as "Tuo─Fo," so I deliberately call out for people's attention to this point, with the hope that thereby the inspirational blessing will be more wide-spreading and inspirational effects sensed earlier.
