“Sariputra, if there are people who have already made the vow, who now make the vow, or who are about to make the vow, ‘I desire to be born in Amitabha’s country,’ these people, whether born in the past, now being born, or to be born in the future, all will irreversibly attain to anuttarasamyaksambodhi. Therefore, Sariputra, all good men and good women, if they are among those who have faith, should make the vow, ‘I will be born in that country.’”

~ Amitabha Sutra

When I obtain the Buddhahood, any being of the boundless and inconceivable Buddha-worlds of the ten quarters whose body if be touched by the rays of my splendour should not make his body and mind gentle and peaceful, in such a state that he is far more sublime than the gods and men, then may I not attain the enlightenment.

Some Kind Words Shared by 'An Eternal Now'

An Eternal Now said...

Wow I'm glad this part of the blog has been set up =) Buddhists lack places to post testimonies..

Anyway, I am truly grateful for Buddha's wisdom and his compassion that he bestows upon us. His compassion is truly far-reaching and had made impact on so many lives. The reason why I am a Buddhist is because of Buddha's profound Teachings, not just because it is logical and insightful but also because it is based upon our every moment experiences, and offers us to awaken the Buddha within us. Through Buddha's teachings and how it affects our lives, we begin to develope confidence and faith in his teachings.

The Eight-Fold path has been taught so clearly for those who are able to appreciate and receive his teachings, so that we may develop a fully wholesome way of life and also find deep calm and joy wherever we are, even in the midst of living and handling any difficult situations we may encounter. We become unentangled with our life situation and when our mind is clear, wisdom arises that allows us to see what leads to what and know the right course of action. Therefore we can say that the Buddha's teachings is a guide in our lives.

Through the practise of Dharma, I have also learnt to become aware of my behavior and speech at all moments, whether my behaviors and speech are condusive towards awakening. Even if I were to become angry and agitated, the 8 fold path will serve as a reminder that prevents any wreckless behavior, and this awareness of the 8 fold path will quickly get rid of any dark clouds in my mind, and a sense of inner peace remains. It is this awareness that also allows myself to remove any impurities and awaken the Buddha in us - my own ignorance, illusions and self-serving habits that I must break.

This is a nice contribution, I want to share my reflections and experiences too!
