“The great Buddhist practice is to say the Name of the Tathagata of unhindered light (Namu-Amida-Butsu). This practice, embodying all good acts and possessing all roots of virtue, is perfect and most rapid in bringing about birth (into the Pure Land, the realm of Nirvana). It is the treasure ocean of virtues that is Suchness or true reality (Dharma-body). For this reason, it is called great practice.”
