摂取心光常照護 Amida Buddha’s Embracing Light always
shines and provides protection. 已能雖破無明闇 Although darkness of mind already is
dispelled by the power of Amida
----Hymn of True Faith, Page 13
Amida Buddha’s Embracing Light: Amida Buddha’s power, which destroys darkness of mind in a split-second of ichinen and provides protection until one dies. Darkness of mind already is dispelled: Darkness of mind, which is the source of suffering, has already been eliminated in an ichinen in this life through the power of Amida Buddha’s Primal Vow.
*Ichinen: The shortest possible unit of time, even shorter than a nanosecond.
