Amitabha CHANTS:
"Pure Land Rebirth Dharani"
& MORE great resources


Dear mindful friends,

The Pure Land path of Buddhism is a truly beautiful expression of the Dharma of "Bodhichitta." When understood at a deeper level, we realize that the "Pure Land" is a Buddha Energy Field of the collective wisdom, compassion and empowerment of the Sangha communities across time and space, here and now, as well as there and then. And "Amitabha" (Infinite Light) is our very own Buddha Nature, inherent in all beings, and fully embodied as our elder sisters and brothers, the Enlightened Buddhas and Bodhisattvas of the Universe.

The Pure Land Rebirth Dharani (Longer Amitabha Mantra) is a verbal manifestation of this "Bodhichitta" Enlightened Reality, and as we recite it in our hearts, we can feel the power of our connection to this Collective Consciousness of Wisdom, Compassion and Empowerment.

Please enjoy these two YouTube versions of the Dharani below (one is in Sanskrit, the other in Chinese). Once I finish recording my own musical version of this chant, I will email it to you next month.
