The Ten-Recitation Method

This simple, convenient and effective way to practice Buddha Recitation is especially suitable for those who find that they have little time for cultivation. It helps us to be mindful of Buddha Amitabha. It brings us quiet joy.

we begin when we wake up. Sit up straight and clearly recite “Amituofo” ten time with a calm and focused mind, aloud or silently. We repeat this process eight more time, each time doing one round of ten recitations. Recite nine times daily at these times:

Upon waking up

Before breakfast, lunch and dinner

Before and after our morning’s work

Before and after our afternoon’s work

Upon retiring

The key is regularity; disruption of this practice will reduce its effectiveness. When we recite consistently without interruption, we will soon feel an increase in our purity of mind, wisdom and serenity. Diligent practice of this method, together with unwavering belief and vows, can ensure fulfillment of our wish to be reborn in the Western Pure Land.

Namo Amitabha!
