Relying on Chanting "Amitabha"

Yutang Lin

Lengthy theses or short essays, so what?
One thought of "Amitabha" dispels worries.
Theories and practices are myriad in fashion;
At the juncture of life and death, rely on what?


Even though theory has been comprehended, to reduce or dispel karmic hindrances and sorrows it all depends on accumulation of devoted practices. Methods of practice are myriad in fashion, and yet at the juncture of life and death it all depends on clarity of mind.
