Why the Pureland?

The Pureland is the surest exit that Sakyamuni Buddha meant to show

all living beings, knowing how arduous be their practice in the saha

world, how rootless be their blessedness and wisdom, how inadequate

be their ability for concentration, how hefty be their karmic hindrances,

and how storming be the worldly temptations. The Buddha would want

them to seek rebirth in the Pureland.
