Transforming Evil into Good

On the journey to the Pure Land accounting for what has been accomplished is as important as focus on burning the evil karma accumulated. A sure way to remain stuck in Samsara is to falsely believe just one call to Amida is as good as ten.

This is why Buddha Recitation is important to a Pure Land Buddhist.

Yet Zen Patriarch Hui-Neng is correct about creating good thoughts right now.

So rather than counting my blessings, I count each recitation as the seed of today's good thoughts.

"Good and evil" isn't about "good or evil" fixed both in both time and space.

It's about how we color what we create by thoughts and action.
