Praising Amitābha Buddha (讚阿彌陀佛)
Amitābha Buddha in a golden body is
Unsurpassed in His excellent appearance and radiance.
The curling white hair between His eyebrows is like five Sumeru Mountains.
His blue eyes are as clear as four great oceans.
Present in His radiance are innumerable koṭis of magically manifested Buddhas
And countless magically manifested Bodhisattvas.
He has made forty-eight vows to deliver sentient beings,
Enabling them to arrive in nine grades at the opposite shore.
Namo Amitābha Buddha of great lovingkindness and great compassion, in the Western Land of Ultimate Bliss!
Namo Amitābha Buddha! (Say these words or “namo amituo fo” as many times as one wishes.)
