The Nembutsu alone is true and real

matthewsatori:

In the words of Shinran Shonin, “The Nembutsu alone is true and real.” This is because all material things are impermanent and subject to decay.

Amida Buddha, as Dharma-body itself, unfailingly causes the Buddhahood of all who call on his name, Namu-Amida-Butsu. How can we ever repay this boundless compassion?

With humble hearts, we seek to live in gratitude, showing compassion on others in gratitude for the unconditional compassion Amida has shown on ourselves.
