The recitation of the nembutsu is "Namu Amida Butsu", which means "total reliance upon the compassion of Amida Buddha."

Recite this ten times everyday, and you will be saved, as it is mentioned in the Eighteenth Vow of the Amida Buddha in Sutra of Immeasurable Life.

Never say the KommieKat did nothing for you because he loves each and every one of you.:tongue:

Now, lets start together......."Namu Amida Butsu"

南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛
南無阿彌陀佛


Feel better? Great!

um... yeah... the fact that you had to translate "Namu Amida Butsu" for me should tell you that the weird characters below mean absolutely nothing to me

...and probably everyone else here

The characters are pronounced "na mu a mi da butsu"

Stop pretending that your imaginary friend is real.
It's not that you will find Buddha, but that Buddha will find you.
Keep your eyes open.

It's precisely things like this that turn me away from religious beliefs...

Ten times a day? Really? Why ten? Why daily?

Somehow I don't think a real God(s) or important deity would be conceited enough to require one to do something so stupid, monotonous, pointless, and gay just to bring one in their favor...
I mean seriously, is a being so infinitely and incomprehensibly powerful enough to create the universe, of all time and infinite space, really going to give a flying fuck if some insignificant little twat on insignificant planet Earth says some silly phrase nine times instead of ten, or every other day and not daily? It just makes no fucking sense at all!

Clearly things like this are inventions of man because only man would seek to manipulate the minds of the weak through required daily repetition which leads to a permanent place in one's daily schedule, permanent memory, obedience, and belief; a silly means to an end involving more believers to fuel their silly religion.

Anyway, just sayin...I don't wanna step on anyone's dick here.

Buddhism in the West, if not in general, sometimes suffers from excessive commercialism, where people pay exorbitant amounts for meditation retreats, seminars with famous gurus, meditation equipment, or elaborate altars. This is kind of ironic given the Buddhist teaching of renunciation, both as a monk and as a lay person.

I hope I'm not dropping a deuce when he comes looking for me.
This seems like the best time for you, when you are most relaxed and self-reflective, building Lincoln Logs. Don't be shy when he announces himself.

Agreed, but I am not in the West. I live with Chinks, remember?
Buddha will find you as well. Most likely when you're being compassionate with your dildo.

I know you dwell amongst the adorable Asian peoples' and indeed, you are very fortunate to have found peace and tranquility away from the barbarians of your former homeland.
Buddha may well find me, but he better bring his own dildo, as I have no intention of sharing mine with the fat twat.
