A person who believes and accepts Amitabha’s deliverance and aspires to be reborn in Amitabha’s Pure Land will certainly take his own miscellaneous false thoughts coolly, and care much more seriously about recitation of Amitabha’s name. Due to his mindfulness on this, he naturally recites “Namo Amituofo, Namo Amituofo…” at whatever time and in whatever place. Even though no voice is heard, his lips keep moving all the time regardless of where, or what he is doing. - Master Huijing
