My Land, like nirvana itself, will be beyond comparison. I feel compassion for all sentient beings and vow to save them all.
Those who come to my Pure Land from the ten directions will find joy and serenity of heart. When they reach my Land, they shall dwell in peace and happiness.
—Dharmakara (Amideva), in the praise of Lokesvararaja, Amitayus Sutra
