I have to listen with all my heart
Amida Buddha has poured his life into one character ‘Nyaku (If)’, promising to make us be reborn with a mind of faith and joy. No other buddhas have the power to save us. Only the Master Buddha, Amida Buddha, has the power to eradicate our Dark Mind, our root cause of suffeirng. I learned how marvelous Amida Buddha is. I learned that Amida Buddha has created the Name, Namu Amida Butsu, because there are people who are suffering because of a disease. We have contracted the horrible disease of the Dark Mind. Amida Budddha already made the medicine to cure the disease of Dark Mind ten kalpas ago. We can obtain this medicine in an Ichinen, meaning a split second. Amida Buddha has pledged to this medicine in an Ichinen, meaning a split second. Amida Buddha has pledged to save us at the risk of his life. True Buddhist masters also constantly put their lives at stake to give sermons. I realized that we, who want to be saved by Amida, have to listen intently as well even if it means fighting our way through raging flames.
