You are banging on an open door,
Asking Amida to open it.
It has been kept wide open for so long!
Put aside everything to see it.
It’s exactly your plea to open the open door,
Preventing you from entering it.
Hear Amida’s call very deeply:
He’s calling all to enter the open door.
Nothing is required to enter –
Any requirement is the obstacle.
Such Faith is simply the absence of doubt,
Not some state or special condition.
Unconditional compassion in Amida’s call,
Relieves you from all doubt.
Be embraced by it,
And enter the open door!
