“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.

~ Amitabha Buddha's Thirty-Third Vow

Living Buddhist masters

  1. Thanks for sharing this information! If I may also share, I love surrounding myself with Buddhism Art because it helps me with my Zen.

  2. Amulets and talismans are in fact nothing more or less than good luck charms and after all that is exactly what millions of people in this world look for; shop for, and crave for in their lives. What we'll be looking at here is a brief look back at the history of these good luck symbols in various cultures of the world. These symbols are as different as the many and varied cultures of the world and differ considerably according to their times and places of origin as well as their societies and religions. After all, an amulet may certainly represent a God or a symbol of deity such as a cross or a bull or an "eye of Horus", or another such representation according to the culture. Some societies even use gemstones as symbols of deity. 四面佛
