How do we practice daily?

Use the Ten Recitation Method

 

The Ten Recitation method is a simple, convenient, and effective way of practicing Buddha Recitation. It is especially suitable for those who find little time in the day for cultivation. Practicing the Ten Recitation method helps us to regain mindfulness of and Amitabha Buddha and brings us peace and clarity in the present moment.

 

We should begin this practice the first thing in the morning, as soon as we wake up. We should sit up straight and clearly recite Amitabha's name ten times with an undisturbed mind, whether out loud or silently to ourselves. We should repeat this process eight more times during the rest of the day. Altogether, we should do one round of ten recitations nine times a day, every day, as follows:

 

  1. After waking up
  2. At breakfast
  3. Before work
  4. Before lunch break
  5. At lunch
  6. After lunch break
  7. When getting off work
  8. At dinner
  9. At bedtime


We practice this method nine times a day, every day. The key point is regularity; we must not practice one day and fail to practice the next day. If this practice is maintained steadily, the cultivator will soon feel his or her purity of mind increase, and his or her wisdom grow.

 

Diligent practice of the Ten Recitation method, together with deep, unwavering belief and determined vows, can ensure fulfillment of our wish to reach the Western Pure Land of Infinite Life and Infinite Light.
