I Have Been Reciting Amitabha Since I Was Young
Amitabha is a deliverance Buddha,
His compassionate deliverance is partial to sentient beings suffering deeply in samsara;
Amitabha is our savior, whose deliverance is unconditional.
Amitabha Buddha’s compassionate aspiration is most profound,
He vows to liberate all the sentient beings of the ten directions.
I have been through the cycle of birth and death for countless kalpas, treading water with nothing to grasp on to;
Now that I have been born a human and have heard the wonderful Dharma,
I vow to recite Amitabha Buddha’s name and aspire to be reborn in his Pure Land.
Faith in, and acceptance of, Amitabha’s deliverance
Single-minded recitation of Amitabha’s name
Aspiration to rebirth in Amitabha’s Pure Land
Comprehensive deliverance of all sentient beings
