Re: Amitayus sutra

That sutra is from the Tibetan Canon. Not sure if a parallel exists in Chinese. If one does, I can say for sure, it's not considered a fundamental sutra in East Asian Mahayana.

Me too, I usually recite "Namo Amituofo".
What does "Omituofo" mean ? "Amituofo" ("Amitabha Buddha") or "Namo Amituofo" ("Namo Amitabha Buddha") ?
Yes, "Omitoufo" is just how "Amituofo" sounds to me sometimes.

Re: Five refuges?

I've never heard of Five refuges either - having experience with the liturgies & refuge ceremonies in Vietnamese Tiantai, Jodo Shu, and Jodo Shin Shu.

Re: Pure Land practice and Vajrayana (HYT)

Actually the requirements are less than that. Merely aspiring to be born there with a sincere wish is said to be enough in the sutra. Preaching otherwise is considered by many of the Pure Land schools to not only be incorrect, but dangerous. I know the sutra. Lack of merit will hinder rebirth in we...
