The monk stated meaning on the arm of the Amitabha Buddha on picking up of sentient beings on the fruits of four saints (Buddha, Pratyekabuddha, Sravaka Dharma, Bodhisattva). In beginningless lives, people are forever immersed in the sea of love and full-fill pain.

 Buddha Amitabha personally accepted the mission of leading sentient beings, but His children who were still greedy for play did not turn back. Cultivators practice the section of Pure Land and believe that the Buddha is waiting to welcome us to there (faith), to diligently recite the name of Buddha (Practice) and to aspire to be born in the Buddha realm (Vow). When we have enough these three elements, we will definitely be born to the world of Buddha. Let us awaken soon, realize the suffering, don't wallow in pain forever, return to the Buddha realm soon.
