For those who begins to step into the World of Buddhism, I strongly recommend the chanting of Amitabha Buddha’s name as well as practice meditation everyday. That is the best way to keep our mind away from bad things, bad attitudes and bad habits that used to be thought unchangeable.
First thing first, to build up our strong faith, we should study and read about what Buddha taught from 2556 years ago, including the teaching of Pure Land.
This is the Youtube video, I created to help you with reading about Pure Land Buddhism, 48 Great Promises of Amitabha Buddha and the community of the Western Pure Land.
The introduction to the Western Pure Land Buddhism’s books
If you have already believed in Reincarnation, Rebirth and Karma, you would also believe in the Pure Land Buddhism, where our souls will never die alone and be rescued by the greatest compassion of the Buddha of Infinite.
Living without faith is like living with Devil.
The world is changing dramatically these days. Optimists believe the world is becoming better but pessimists are not. Well, from my Buddhist perspective, I just follow Buddha’s sutras, which are still true for ever lasting. Many natural disasters and global warming have happened terribly all over the world. People are now more concerning about money, houses, cars, family, mortgage, external beauty, travelling and technology… but they forgot to take care their mind, which is pure, vulnerable and beautiful. Human beings would like to control the others, not much caring, sharing and showing up their empathy, because this mad world narrows their mind. They cannot think about the others while being trapped in their small world.
That is the answer for all dramas happening around the world. There is nothing can make human satisfied with what they possess.
In the future, human beings will catch more and more unknown diseases and science is always back behind to find the cure.
The only simple cure from sutra can erase all physical and mental illnesses for all living beings in the whole universe is chanting the name of Amitabha Buddha, the Lord of Pure Land Buddhism.
“NAM MO AMITUOFO- NAM MÔ A DI ĐÀ PHẬT”
Our mind is such a mess of thinking, worries, problems, stresses…By repeating daily “Nam Mo Amituofo”, we wipe out all these disturbing things and make ourselves fresh and tranquil to cope with a new busy day for the next morning. In the long term, with our best effort, we ourselves can surprisingly build up a stronger and healthier mind in a natural way. Magically, the name of Buddha helps our mind overwhelming by all good things such as compassion, empathy, positive thinking and enthusiasm. We can feel peace in our mind and then peace will be in the world.
