Surangama Sutra

Surangama Sutra:

It is the same with those who practice concentration on the name of Amitabha – they develop within their minds Amitabha’s spirit of compassion toward all sentient life… 

…just as one associating with the maker of perfumes becomes permeated with the same perfumes, so he will become perfumed by Amitabha’s compassion, and will become enlightened without any other expedient means.

Blessed Lord! My devotion to reciting the name of Amitabha had no other purpose than to return to my original nature of purity (Buddha-nature) and by it I attained to the state of non-rebirth perseverance (enlightenment).
