The true meaning and value of learning Buddhism
Anyone who studies Buddhism knows that when you start to study Buddhism, you must recite the name of Buddha, you can recite the name of “Amitabha Buddha”, you can also recite the name of “Avalokitesvara Bodhisattva”, “King Jizang Bodhisattva”, or the names of all Buddhas and Bodhisattvas such as Medicine Buddha and Maitreya Buddha. Take it as your daily lesson, practice it morning and evening, or just recite it at ordinary times, so what is the true meaning of reciting Buddha? Or in other words, why do we recite Buddha?
The Buddhist Pure Land Sect advocates reciting the name of Amitabha exclusively, reciting the four characters “Amitabha Buddha” or the six characters “Nanwu Amitabha Buddha”. This clearly tells us the true meaning of reciting Buddha and the ultimate goal we want to achieve.
The Buddha’s Amitabha Sutra records: “You must not be less kind, and you must be born in another country.” It also says, “If there are good men and good women who hear about Amitabha Buddha and hold the name. If one day, if two days, if three days, if four days, if five days, if six days, if seven days, one’s heart will not be disturbed, and when a person dies, his heart will not be turned upside down. Amitabha Buddha and all the saints are now in front of him. When a person dies, his heart will not be turned upside down, that is, he will be reborn in the land of Amitabha Buddha’s bliss.”
That is to say, when reciting Buddha, you must maintain a state of undisturbed mind, without any delusions and mixed thoughts in your heart, you only have a Buddha name, and you only want to be reborn in the West, without doing what you want, without what you want. In this way, good roots and merits are full of karma, and you must be able to sense them., naturally transformed in the Western Pure Land of Bliss.
When ordinary people do not believe in Buddhism, or when their beliefs and wishes are not deep, their minds are always filled with their own delusions and attachments. The heart is full of anxiety, care, reluctance, and can’t let go, especially when they are on their deathbed, thinking back on their life experiences, all the good and evil things they have done seem to be vivid in their minds. Can they completely let go? Can all the money, reputation, wife, children, and children be left behind? Do you want to tell the various “secrets” hidden in your heart? What will be explained by future generations, how to distribute property, etc., all grievances, grievances, pains, troubles and other obsessions flock to us. These are all obstacles to our liberation.
Therefore, the true meaning of chanting Buddha can no longer be understood. It is to repeat a Buddha name through continuous practice on weekdays, strengthen it into one’s subconscious, and constantly tell oneself to ask for liberation, to break away from the six realms of reincarnation, and to rely on Amitabha Buddha’s compassion and wish to be reborn smoothly into the world of bliss. At the same time, maintaining a single-mindedness in chanting the Buddha name can greatly train one’s ability to maintain a single-mindedness.
