The majestic light of the Buddha Amitayus is the most exalted. No other Buddha’s light can match his. The light of some Buddhas illuminates a hundred Buddha-lands, and that of others, a thousand Buddha-lands.
Once one has encountered Amitabha’s light, suddenly one views society with new eyes. The clouds part and the perspective clears. Suddenly one sees the nature of the human condition in not-so-glorious technicolor. The news, the subject matter of the television programming, observations in the shopping mall – all of these things will no longer escape your attention like they may have escaped it before. And everywhere you look you will witness the craving, anger and ignorance of a human race caught in the endless round of Samsara.
