Amitabha practice

Dear Amitabha,

As I grow older

I become younger

Your 3-year-old child

Defenseless, ignorant, afraid

I can only

Cling to you with all my might.

Even if I prostrated

all day

every day

for the rest of my life

I could never ever

thank you


How can I not leap and dance

throw my wobbly ageing body

To the elements.

I know…

I thank you

Dearest Amitabha Buddha

That moment I ask Amitabha Buddha

to fill my heart

with his love

I have a bodhi heart.
