Letting go of the goal of perfection

"Pure Land [...] invites the practitioner to let go of striving for individual goals and personal perfection. Such projects are built of sand. More though, such striving traps us in that very delusion that Buddhist teaching would have us relinquish. It binds us to the cycle of self-creation. To accept our complexities and our messy natures is a great relief."
