Gatha of Praise for Amitabha Buddha

Amitabha’s body is like golden mountains.
The splendor of his marks illuminates the Ten Directions.
Only those who recite his name are embraced by his light.
His Fundamental Vow is the most powerful.
Tathagatas of the Six Directions extend their tongues to attest:
By reciting Amitabha’s name exclusively,
sentient beings will arrive at the Western Land of Bliss.
Once born there in a blooming lotus,
one can listen to wondrous Dharma teachings.
The aspiration and practices of the ten Bodhisattva stages manifest naturally.
