Mere Believers?


‘BELIEVERS don’t WISH; they WORK.’ Kind of true; kind of not. In Pure Land Buddhism, the Three Provisions of Faith (rational conviction; not blind faith), Aspiration (to reach Pure Land) and Practice (of mindfulness of Amituofo) are crucial. Faith is the ‘BELIEF’, Aspiration is the ‘WISH’, and Practice is the ‘WORK’. Truth is, these Three Provisions are needed for success in all endeavours, worldly and spiritual. You need to believe in your goal, want to go for it, and truly go for it.
