“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.

What is Life? It is Now...

Make the Now the primary focus of your life. Whereas before you dwelt in time and paid brief visits to the Now, have your dwelling place in the Now and pay brief visits to past and future when required to deal with the practical aspects of your life situation.

expressed by Eckhart Tolle

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



  1. Thank you for the visit my friend. Learning to live in the NOW has been a lifestyle change for me, but I highly recommend it. It encompasses a touch of the past with a hint of the future, all wrapped up in the present.
    An overlay of awareness, brightens the path ahead when this is achieved, as each day fills to overflowing.

    p.s. No disrespect meant, but awakening one's EMPATHY,(walking a mile in their shoes), takes one into and through the suffering Buddhism would avoid and prepares you to MEET GOD. This IS experiance and not booklearning. This is essential to do NOW.

  2. p.p.s. As a student of Siddartha, perhaps you are aware of the significance of having BOTH a full lunar & solar eclipse on either side of an equinox the same year and before my 40th year.

  3. Thank you for the message my friend. May this practice of living in the NOW be our common ground of Joy & Peace, transcending the fact that the Christian or Muslim concepts of God do not exist in Buddhism.
