Re: No Proofs of Sucessful Rebirths?&Are Pure Land sutras real?

I was first started out as a Pure Land Buddhist and maybe what can be close to meditation is my daily recitation of "Namo Amitabha Buddha". But I finally found Chan to be much more...

I'm not claiming that I have never done it myself, but I would like to be careful about that, ka...
